LLANELLI’S AM Lee Waters is reminding parents and carers that they could be eligible to receive up to £200 to buy school uniform , equipment, sports kit and kit for activities outside of school for your child
Lee Waters AM is urging parents and carers to contact their local authority to see if they are eligible for the Pupil Development Grant (PDG) before the start of the new school year.
The Welsh Labour Government funding means that eligible pupils can apply for £125 to buy school uniform, equipment, sports kit and kit for activities outside of school for your child.
For more information on eligibility and how to apply for this grant, please Carmarthenshire County Council.
Lee Waters AM said
“Pupils should not miss out on opportunities or feel excluded because of their personal circumstances. Welsh Labour believe that everyone should be encouraged to aim high and be properly supported to achieve.”
“This money is to help pupils in Llanelli and Carmarthenshire reach their full potential. I would urge parents and carers to find out whether they are eligible.”
