Important changes to School Clothing Grant allowance

You might have been aware of the recent media reports about the council’s decision to increase the school clothing grant and make it a simpler process for parents and carers – with families now being notified that they qualify for the grant instead of having to apply.


Letters are being sent out to parents and carers across the city over the next couple of weeks – more details copied below for information – and press and media should be running the story this week to highlight to Glasgow families.


Under plans revealed as part of the city’s new anti-poverty strategy – People Make Glasgow Fairer – the annual School Clothing Grant award has also been increased by £5 to £52 per child, per year.


More than 25,000 envelopes with vouchers for school clothing grants are being delivered this week. 

This means that more than 20,000 parents will also receive a backdated payment of £5 to reflect this increase.
