Although life may begin to return to normal soon, we know the impact of the pandemic will be a reality for families for some time.
Covid means fewer options for children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities, so it’s hard to have children at home for more of the time. We also recognise there are usually added costs of caring for a child with additional needs.
As a result of the campaign run by footballer Marcus Rashford, schools and charities working with families have received funding through the Government’s Covid Winter Grant scheme, via Sussex Community Foundation, to help families provide for their children and young people aged 0 – 25.
If you, or your family, is struggling financially, we invite you to apply for a voucher per child or young person, to help cover the cost of food at this difficult time.
Once your form has been assessed, you have provided evidence and if you are eligible, you will be sent a confirmation email with an e-voucher for a local supermarket of your choice.
Please note, West Sussex Covid Winter Grants are limited and these will be issued by us to eligible families on a first come first served basis.
