Summer 2022

Financial support

Worried about costs?

Managing your money across the summer holiday period can be stressful.

Projects that receive funding to be part of the Get into Summer programme have also been asked to consider some of the hidden costs - such as food or transport - to make sure that there are no barriers to taking part. 

If you're worried about your finances more generally including benefits, council tax or rent, or food costs this summer, we have lots of support available. 

Free School Meals

All families who are eligible through their income and are registered for a Free School Meal, will be entitled to £2.50 per child per day to help with meals. This additional benefit will be paid directly into families' bank accounts throughout the summer. This is not part of the universal Free School Meal offer during term time, only families registered for Free School Meals will receive the additional funding.

Transport

Although transport is not included in our offer, families are reminded of the free concessionary travel for under 22s and the Pingo (demand led transport initiative) in the Berwickshire area.
