Our best practice policy is to make payments to the organisation where possible for any individual grant. This will be to the school, club treasurer, Nomad, etc.
Scale of Assistance
Payments are decided on a sliding scale depending on income, family size and circumstances.
Deposits for School Trips
There is an expectation from the charity, that the individual will pay any deposit, except in exceptional circumstances.
Sports Club Fees
There is an expectation from the charity that the individual will pay or 10-15% of sports club fees.This will be waived only in exceptional circumstances.
The charity requires an applicant to submit a form at the beginning of the term. If successful, the charity will pay against invoice at the end of the term. We will not pay to enable the parent/guardian purely to attend employment. There must be a confirmed educational need for extra sessions declared by a designated professional. We will not pay off debtors accounts at the end of the term.
