Covid Winter Grant

The Oakwood Academy to make you aware of an additional support scheme that has been opened up to non FSM families – funded through the Covid Winter Grant Scheme. Details are below.


Extra Support for Families

The Winter Grant Scheme is now open to Nottingham City residents in receipt of Council Tax Support, with or without children. With rising food costs, we hope this extra support will ease the strain on some families to help them through these difficult times.

If you need support during this difficult time and believe that you quality, please find out more including how to apply using the website link below.
