Re: Hillingdon Winter Grant Scheme for families entitled to FSM
Dear Parent / Carer,
The government has awarded money to Hillingdon Council as part of the Covid Winter Grant Scheme to provide support to vulnerable households and families with children affected by the pandemic during the winter period.
As school holidays can be a particularly challenging time for families, anyone with children eligible for benefits-related free school meals will receive a Covid-19 winter payment.
In most cases we have the contact details / email address for eligible families, unfortunately the Council does not have an up to date record of your contact details.
To enable the Council to make a payment to you, in the form of supermarket vouchers (for the two-week school break) we are inviting you to complete the following online form.
The Council are also inviting families to apply for a payment towards the cost of their utility bills.
Further information about the scheme can be found on the Council website: www.hillingdon.gov.uk/winter-grant
