Help with school clothing costs

Last updated: 15 May 2017

You may be able to get financial help with your child's school clothing and shoes. This help is called a 'school clothing grant' and is available from your local council.

Local councils give this financial support as either:

  • cash grants (paid into your bank account)
  • vouchers for shops

The eligibility criteria (who can apply) and the amount of money you'll get depend on your local council.

You may be able to apply for free school meals at the same time as you apply for the clothing grant.
