Parents and carers can now apply for grants to pay for their children's school uniform.
School uniform grants are issued annually by Employment & Social Security and aim to provide all children with a basic school uniform.
The amount granted is determined by the annual household income and allowed expenses, so not all applications
will be eligible for a full uniform grant.
