Vulnerable children in Kingston to receive food vouchers over the half term holiday

Kingston Council has confirmed that extra support will be given to the most vulnerable children in the borough over the coming school holidays.

This scheme is now closed 

Arrangements have been put in place to ensure that the most vulnerable families are able to access food vouchers during this half term and over the Christmas holiday period. Parents whose children have a social worker or are receiving support from the borough’s children’s services department may be eligible for assistance.

Details on eligibility and how to access the scheme can be found on the Achieving for Children website.

Families who are impacted by COVID-19 can also request assistance through The Kingston Stronger Together support hub.     

Cllr Diane White, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services including Education at Kingston Council, said:

“It is important that we do everything we can to support our children and families in need, and I am very pleased that we are able to make this contribution towards reducing holiday hunger.”
