£13m cash boost to help families in Wales with school costs including PE kit

THE Welsh Government has announced a £13 million support package as a way of helping people meet the cost of sending their children to school.

The new funding will provide families across Wales, who are eligible for help through the Pupil Development Grant (PDG) with a one-off £100 top-up payment in 2022-23 to help with the costs of sending their children to school

This new funding is part of the Welsh Labour Government’s Household Support Fund

Jeremy Miles, Minister for Education and Welsh Language, said:

“In the midst of this Tory cost-of-living crisis, household budgets are under significant pressure and many parents will be worried about how they can afford the things their children need for school.

“Those families in receipt of the PDG Access Grant will already be using the £200 to help pay for their children’s school uniform. This extra payment will help cover other costs, such as PE kits, school shoes and other equipment, helping household budgets go a little bit further.

“I’m pleased we can provide a bit more help to families at this difficult time and remove some of the financial barriers to education.”
