Benefits for Children at School


Many families miss out on education benefits (such as free school meals, clothing grants and school journey grants), tax credits and social security benefits because they do not know they can claim. 

Please read the attached letter.

Royal Greenwich’s updated 'Benefits for children at school' leaflet summarises the main sources of help available for families and is now available on the Royal Greenwich website:


The Royal Borough’s Welfare Rights team is keen to ensure that local families are claiming their full entitlement and are encouraging residents to call their telephone helpline on 020 8921 6375 for a free benefit check. Last year, the service helped local residents to claim over £5 million in extra benefits.
