The Uniform Grant is a means tested benefit, issued annually, intended to assist you in providing a basic school uniform for your children. The amount of grant you receive is calculated with reference to your annual household income and allowed expenses.
Responsibility for the school uniform clothing and educational maintenance grant was transferred from Education Services to Social Security from 2016.
