Many eligible disabled children are unfairly missing out on a free lunch because they can’t attend school or are unable to eat the meal provided due to dietary or sensory needs.
Human rights lawyers have written a free school meals guide and four template letters to help families whose disabled child is eligible for free school meals, but can’t access them in the standard way.
You can highlight your particular situation in our online flow chart . You’ll be directed to the correct template letter to use. The letters include important information including who to send the letter to at the school or local authority.
Please note: these letters were written for those living in England. We will be writing letters for children living in other parts of the UK, and they will be available soon.
Coming soon – our free school meals webinar recording
As part of the campaign Contact hosted a webinar today featuring lawyers Alex Rook, Steve Broach and campaign founder Natalie Hay. The webinar will be available to watch back soon.
