Get help with school uniform costs this summer form UNISON’s own welfare arm There for you


As we move into summer, the new school year starts to loom, and with it, worries over the cost of new school uniforms – but UNISON can help.

If you’re a member and need help with the costs of new school uniforms, you can apply for a grant from our welfare arm There for You between now and 21 July.

The grant is a one-off payment of £40 per school age child, up to a total of £120, to help members on low incomes deal with the cost of school uniforms.

Families often struggle to make ends meet – and this can be particularly acute before the new school year begins, when those extra costs hit hard.

To qualify, members must either be receiving housing benefit or have a net household income of less than £18,000 a year.  For more information download the questions and answers page HERE
