Warwickshire’s Welfare Scheme Details (Free School Meals)


If children are registered for Free School Meals parents/carers can apply for assistance to buy food whilst they are not at school.

If children are registered for Free School Meals parents/carers can apply for assistance to buy food whilst they are not at school. This will be through a £30 voucher per child that they will receive via text/SMS to their mobile and can be exchanged for cash at any Paypoint outlet. We are currently offering six weeks of support as we do not know how long schools will be closed for. From Monday 23rd March 2020, our Local Welfare Scheme Team will be happy to help and parents/carers can apply using either of these methods:
o calling on 0800 4081448 or 01926 359182. You will be asked for each child’s name, date of birth and a valid mobile number
o emailing us at warwickshirelocalwelfarescheme@warwickshire.gov.uk. You will need to include each child’s name, date of birth and a valid mobile number
Please be patient when calling us as we are anticipating a high volume of enquiries. We can confirm that you can contact us at anytime during the six weeks and you will still be eligible for the full amount.
