Cuts

Bromley school uniform grants 

Location: UK » London » BR

Bromley Council has voted to axe clothing grants for school pupils as part of its 2011-13 cuts plan.

The grants were available to parents of Bromley schoolchildren who were in receipt of certain benefits or receiving the support of asylum services. The grant was most recently set at £31 for primary pupils and £62 for secondary pupils per year.

Scrapping the scheme is expected to save the council £100k in 2011/12 and £200k in 2012/13.
