No Child Cold Campaign

Over 500 families have received support, we are ready to help more and want to spread the word

As the No Child Cold scheme continues we have seen over 500 families come forward for support. The changeable weather and the increased knowledge of the funding has led to more uptake of the grants. If you know of families who need this support please encourage them to access the funds so that together we can ensure no child is trying to learn in a cold home this winter.

 

One Bradford head teacher said:

‘We are very grateful for the No Child Cold grant which has provided much needed support for many of our families.  Within minutes of sending a notification, we had over 35 responses asking for us to apply on their behalf and this continued to rise over the next couple of days. We have now submitted over 100 applications which is a clear indication of the need.  With so many additional challenges for children and their families at the moment, this grant has taken away some of the anxiety about money and ensured that children are able to learn without being distracted by feeling cold.  On behalf of the families at our school, a big THANK YOU to everyone who is supporting this initiative.
