Summer is coming and many UNISON members will be facing the cost of new school uniforms after the holidays.
But UNISON is here to help – our welfare charity There for You has a limited fund to help members on low incomes deal with the cost of buying school uniforms, by providing a grant of up to £40.
Families living on low income with children struggle constantly to make ends meet – and this can be particularly acute before the new school year begins when the extra costs hit hard.
And that daily struggle is a reality for too many public-service workers having to get by on low or even minimum wages. So make sure your members know about the help which is available. You can download an application – and members have until 20 July to get it back.
