COVID Local Support Grant fund

The government has recently announced that the COVID Local Support Grant Scheme (CLSG) will be extended for the summer break for those children and families most in need during the ongoing pandemic. These grants are to help pay for food, gas, water, and electricity during this difficult time. The Summer scheme will be delivered utilising the same method as the May scheme.   


Parents and carers, who are newly eligible to register for food vouchers should do so via this link


For the summer COVID Local Support Grant Scheme each eligible child will receive vouchers with a total value of £80. We will distribute two £40 vouchers to parents and carers for each eligible child on two separate dates.  These are as follows:


  • first distribution date is week commencing 19 July
  • second distribution date is week commencing 9 August.


If parents and carers have not received the voucher by either the 26 July or 16 August respectively, please can they contact us on this email address
