What we do

We all need a little help from time to time, and with the rising costs of living many people in Wales need help now.

The Welsh Government is doing everything it can to put money back into people's pockets.

Free school meals are available to eligible children who attend a maintained school in Wales. Universal primary free school meals are currently being rolled out across Wales, starting with the youngest learners in our primary schools.

Check if your child can get free school meals and find out how to apply on your local authority’s website.
