Government Help For Local Families
Barnsley families in need of financial assistance will be offered vouchers, food, or meals as part government initiative to help keep children fed during the coronavirus pandemic.
The offer will be available to all children who currently receive a free school meal, even if they are no longer attending school due to lockdown closures.
Each child will be entitled to one £15 voucher per week during term time.
Schools across the borough may be able to prepare meals or food parcels for collection or delivery if the school is not offering vouchers.
If your child qualifies for free school meals, they may also be entitled to free school milk and group instrumental music lessons at a third of the price.
