Cost of Living Help – Summer Holidays

Credit cards, loans or going into debt for essentials? Get help during summer holidays

The rising cost of living continues to impact people across the area, even in the summer months.

Especially with the summer holidays almost here. To get by many are:

  • Getting into credit card debt
  • Using overdrafts
  • Relying on friends and family
  • Stopping eating or making other sacrifices

If you’re doing this, you could access support. Apply for the Household Support Fund.

It can be used to pay for food, bills, energy and other essentials.

Our partners can provide £100 per household with a food, fuel or cash voucher through the Household Support Fund.

It’s open to anyone to apply. You don’t need to receive benefits to be able to apply.

There’s also specific support for families where children receive means-tested free school meals.

This is £15 per child, per week. So you could get £90 to help this summer, as well as help at Christmas, next Easter holidays and the half-terms between.

Dear Parents & Carers,

A massive thank you for the generous donations to the Wokingham Food Bank last week. There will be a Non-Uniform day on Friday the 1st of December in return for donations of a beverage bottle from Junior children (e.g. wine, beer, fizzy drinks etc. but not fresh items please) and sealed confectionery/chocolate from Infant children.  The bottle tombola will be held On Sunday the 10th of December at the PTA Jingle Bell Jog and Festive Fair. We hope to see as many of you as possible at this brilliant festive fund raiser.
