We are in the process of setting up a system with Tesco’s to provide you with vouchers to assist you over the coming weeks.
We will shortly be contacting you to confirm our contact details are correct and for you to confirm your preference of receipt for the voucher, either email or
mobile. Once we have this in place, we will inform you of more details on how the system will work etc and what you can expect to receive.
There is expected to be a Government announcement very shortly on a national initiative to assist families with children on FSM, so we will relay further information as soon as we have it. This may supersede schools sending vouchers but for now we are doing our upmost to get a system in place, so we can assure you we will support you as necessary.
Please follow our previous advice to also claim the £30 voucher from WCC as follows:
Warwickshire's Welfare Scheme Details.
If children are registered for Free School Meals you can apply in the first instance for six weeks of support to buy food whilst they are not at school. This will be through a £30 voucher per child that you will receive via text/SMS to your mobile and can be exchanged for cash at any Paypoint outlet. We are currently offering six weeks of support as we do not know how long schools will be closed for.
From Monday 23rd March 2020, our Local Welfare Scheme Team will be happy to help and you can apply using either of these methods:
- calling on 0800 4081448 or 01926 359182. You will be asked for each child's name, date of birth and a valid mobile number
- emailing us at email@example.com. You will need to include each child's name, date of birth and a valid mobile number
Please be patient when calling us as we are anticipating a high volume of enquiries.
We can confirm that you can contact us at any time during the six weeks and you will still be eligible for the full amount.
