Covid Winter Grant Scheme
We have been informed that Derbyshire County Council will be distributing the funding from the Covid Winter Grant Scheme directly to parents of children who are eligible for free school meals. Schools will not be distributing the electronic vouchers and have no control over the system. We do not know what the value of the vouchers will be but we have been told that they will start to be issued on Monday 14th December in a phased rollout with the aim of most vouchers having been sent out by 21st December.
We hope that the voucher system runs smoothly but would also like to remind you that the food banks will remain open over the Christmas period if you need them, the helpline number is 03337721916.
