School clothing grant

Help towards the cost of school clothing is available for households where the parent or carer is in receipt of certain benefits.

  • Job seekers allowance (income based)
  • Employment and support allowance (income related)
  • Pension credit guaranteed credit
  • Child tax credit, provided they are not entitled to working tax credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Universal Credit. Your annual income assessed by the Department for Work and Pensions must be less than £7,400.
  • Be receiving support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
