Revised eligibility criteria for free school meals in Wales due to the rollout of Universal Credit – September 2018

19.09.18

Children in Wales issued a response to the Welsh Government’s consultation on revised eligibility criteria for free school meals in Wales in September 2018.

Our consultation states our disappointment that only one option was consulted on; and says that the proposals are a missed opportunity to take a more holistic approach to tackling poverty in Wales. Children in Wales is therefore calling for the Welsh Government to urgently reconsider its proposals and to present an alternative option, including a whole school approach to tackling disadvantage.

We also issued a response on behalf of ECPN Cymru.
