The new Education & Training Support programme aims to provide practical help to families in many aspects of education.
It includes useful guides on subjects such as how to deal with problems at school, and also funding for education costs for families struggling financially, including grants for school uniforms, school meals, text books, school trips and learning aids.
The LTC has long-established experience in providing support to people who work in or have retired from the licensed drinks trade on a wide range of issues including debt, health problems, housing and family matters.
Kath Gill, head of Licensed Trade Charity Support & Care, said: “The aim of our Education & Training Support programme is to support families by providing useful, practical guidance on school life, and to help with the extra costs that make a difference if you are struggling. Our grants are designed to give a helping hand during tough times so children can make the most of their
time in school.”
