How to apply for emergency funding for school uniforms.

There isn’t a specific grant for school uniforms, but you can apply for an emergency payment, which can be used to buy clothing.

The emergency payment is a one off fund for people having a financial crisis.

The emergency payment will be in the form of Tesco vouchers. 

Who can apply

You can apply if you:

  • live within the Bristol City Council area
  • have a one off financial crisis, such as your benefits not being paid or losing your job, that means you have no money for basic needs like food, gas or electricity
  • have no other means of support through family, friends or donations

If your application is successful 

We’ll contact you within 10 working days to let you know if your application has been successful. 

We will then post your vouchers to you. Vouchers will be sent royal mail 48 hour tracked, however Royal Mail are experiencing delays so this may take up to 5 working days.
