We understand that this time of year can be difficult for families, even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see below for updates on Free School Meals and the Trussel Trust Foodbank.
Those that have applied to the FSM scheme will receive supermarket vouchers in the next few days. These will be sent out to cover the week of distanced learning plus the Christmas break.
If you are not sure if you are eligible or if you have not received your vouchers, please contact the Free School Meals team on firstname.lastname@example.org or 02920 537 250.
Bryn y Deryn and the Carnegie Centre is also a Trussell Trust Foodbank referral agency. If you feel that you would benefit from this, please call us on 02920 529 398 or email email@example.com.
