FOI request (FOIR-110552384)
School uniform grant
Requested Fri 22 March 2019
Responded Fri 29 March 2019I work for a charity in Luton called Level Trust. We provide free school uniform and other educational support to Luton families.
We are looking into more ways we can support families in need in Luton and possibly beyond. To help with this I am trying to find out what provision already exists across the country from the voluntary and public sector. One of my questions is how many Local Authorities still provide a school uniform grant? Understanding what provision is available will really help us to make decisions about where to spend our resources well.
I wondered if under the freedom of information act I could request the following details:
1. Does your LA provide a school uniform for families?
2. If no, did you ever provide one and if so, when and why did you withdraw it?
3. If you do provide a grant, which families can apply and how much can they get?
4. Do you work with or know of any voluntary organisations in your authority which support families with the costs of school uniform?
