School Uniform Grants across Scotland’s 32 education authorities

As schools return, remember that it may not be too late to apply for a school clothing grant from the local authority. School uniform can be expensive and the Scottish Government have recently provided additional funding to ensure that the minimum grant available is £100. Different authorities have different eligibility criteria, however, and the deadlines and application processes vary, too.

I have therefore put together a spreadsheet which summarises the position in each of the 32 local authorities in Scotland for this school year (2018/19). This is based on my understanding of what the websites say, so you are best to check locally, but this should be a helpful pointer.

Remember that there may also be other supports available, such as school uniform banks or back to school banks, which are becoming more widespread.
