School uniform grants: apply now!

The 2019 School Uniform Grants programme is now available.

You can find an application form below. Please ensure UNISON receives this by Friday 19 July 2019.

Families on low incomes can struggle to make ends meet, especially just before the start of the new school year in September. UNISON’s scheme helps members on low incomes deal with the cost of school uniforms.

One-off grants are available to low-paid UNISON members of £40 per school age child, up to a maximum of £120 per household.

To be eligible you must either be in receipt of housing benefit (or the housing element of Universal Credit) or have a total net household income of £18,000 or less.

To find out more about who is eligible, how to apply and the value of each grant, please download the following:
