Calderdale Council help to recipients of free school meals

Calderdale Council have secured additional funding to help families receiving Free School meals, Housing Benefit or Council tax reduction with bills and food over the months of January and February.

The Winter Grant is supplied from the Department of Work and Pensions.

A letter has been sent from Calderdale Council, offering instructions on how to receive this support.

For questions on this, please contact Calderdale Council on 01422 288001 or visit the council’s website:

If you’re a family who receives Free School Meals, Council Tax Reduction or Housing Benefit, you will have had an email or letter in the last week from the council. Please be assured this is not a scam. We have additional funding to support families with food and fuel bills over the Christmas and February half term holidays. Please follow the instructions we have sent and we will do the rest.
