Household Support Fund Grants

Remember to apply for grants for food and energy

If your child receives free school meals

You are entitled to a Household Support Fund grant, this will be at least £120 and could be more if you have more children.

Payments are £15 per child, per week for the school holidays, including half terms and Easter. You will be back paid to October half term if you’ve not already applied.

Apply for payments on the council website.

Open to all struggling with costs

Grants for £120 to help pay for food or energy bills are open for applications to anymore who is struggling with money.

You can apply through Age UK Berkshire or Citizens Advice Wokingham.

Apply for a Household Support Grant.

Other cost of living help

If you’re not struggling but want to help others who are, donate to the Surviving Winter crowdfund, giving £50 is like giving £150 due to match funding.

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.

Warm regards

The EJS Team
