School Essentials Grant open to families again after huge success last year

The School Essentials Grant can provide up to £200 to help families on lower incomes with essentials such as school uniforms, shoes, bags and school activities.


Last year, the grant helped 100,055 children across Wales.

Llanelli’s Member of the Senedd, Lee Waters, said:


“I know that during the cost of living crisis, many families will be anxious about making sure children have all they need.


This grant can help children with some of the barriers to attending and feeling comfortable in school, as well as taking part in activities with their friends.

With the colder months approaching, the grant can help with essential clothing items, such as coats or shoes.”

The grant is currently open and will close on 31st May 2024. Families should check with their local authority if they are eligible to apply for support.
