Food voucher scheme for vulnerable children

Achieving for Children will be working with Richmond and Kingston councils as well as local schools to support vulnerable families during the upcoming school holidays. School aged children who access free school meals during term time and vulnerable two, three and four year olds will be issued with supermarket vouchers to ensure families can afford to provide them with meals during the holidays.  

Vouchers will be issued at £15 per week per child for the following holiday periods:

  • Autumn half term (1 week)
  • Christmas holidays (2 weeks)
  • Spring half term (1 week)

Schools will be arranging the vouchers for school aged children and eligible families will be contacted automatically. If you have any queries please contact your child’s school.

The AfC Early Years Team will be contacting the families of eligible two, three and four year olds. If you have not been contacted and feel you should be eligible, please email the AfC Early Years Team at early.years@achievingforchildren.org.uk
