School Clothing Grants
The first steps in Glasgow's new anti-poverty campaign - People Make Glasgow Fairer - aims to help every family in the city to make sure they are receiving the benefits they are due. This involves targeting low-income families who, although entitled to the benefit, have not claimed for the School Clothing Grant.
Leader of Glasgow City Council, Councillor Frank McAveety, announced plans to hand out more than £250,000 for unclaimed school clothing grants to around 5000 low-income families with school age children. The move was made in response to a request from the city's Poverty Leadership Panel to increase uptake of school clothing grants and free school meals. The payments will be sent out in mid-December.
