Links to apply for Free School Meals & Support with School Uniform included below.
Good Morning everyone! I am Sandy Bond the MSYP for Moray. Today and for the rest of the week I will be taking over the Moray Youth Matters accounts on Twitter and Instagram to look at poverty in Moray. 1/2
If any one needs help accessing the food they need, especially when we return to school, you can apply for free school meals, this will give you an allowance to spend in the canteen. For more information, follow the link: https://t.co/MBdOoNRQeC
It is really important to remind young people, you can have your say on matters such as poverty! The @OfficialSYP has released its new consultation survey for the 2021-25 manifesto which will guide government on these issues.https://t.co/JHZlUD4A68
Homelessness in Moray is a bigger problem than people might think, at the moment there are over 3,000 people on the waiting list for counsel housing. These are people who are currently unable to afford their homes and due to the Coronavirus crisis are likely to find it harder.
This is very difficult as not having a permanent address means that they are unable to apply for benefits and in some cases may be unable to vote and therefore unable to change the system they are stuck in.
