Urgent message received today at 3pm from Camden Council
URGENT MESSAGE RE. EXTRA SUPPORT OVER HALF-TERM WEEK (26 TO 30 OCTOBER) FOR FAMILIES, WITH CHILDREN, ON BENEFITS
Camden Council is committed to addressing food poverty and is making a commitment to ensure that all Camden families with children aged 4 to 18 and in receipt of benefits will get the support they need for the October half-term (26 to 30 October).
We have today announced a package of support for families, which means vouchers for supermarkets will be made available to all families with school age children who live in Camden and are in receipt of benefits.
Please could you alert your families via email or text message today to this offer. The Council’s benefits team is urgently working to issue the vouchers direct to families early next week. If families who meet the criteria have not been contacted and received a voucher by Wednesday, they can call Contact Camden on 020 7974 4444 (option 9). Families who live outside the borough should be linked with services in their home boroughs.
