Former BHS and Austin Reed staff offered school uniform grants

The Fashion and Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) has launched a fast-track grant to help those retail workers made redundant following the collapses of BHS and Austin Reed buy school uniforms for their children.

Employers made redundant or facing redundancy can apply for £150 per child under 18 years old, to fund uniform and shoe costs for the new school year.

The scheme has already helped 10 families and 14 children and there are more applications in progress.

Information and application forms can be downloaded from the charity’s website here.

The FTCT was founded in 1853 to provide financial support to families of those who are currently or recently employed within the UK fashion and textile industry.
