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.

The claim forms are available from 1 July each year. You can complete an electronic application form by using the link provided on this page or print the application form that is provided on this page, for completion and posting. You can also contact us on 732500 or pop in to see us at Edward T Wheadon house to ask about making an application.
