Funding is being made available to the Council through the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to help households experiencing financial hardship.

Free school meals

The Council will provide £15 vouchers to continue the free school meals scheme through the summer (July and August) holidays. Please contact your children's school if you have any queries regarding this.

Support for pensioners
