New Partner – Youth Association

We have a new partner! The Youth Association has recently been commissioned by Affinity Sutton Housing to work in Halton Moor to provide activities and accreditation opportunities to local young people. Activities currently take place from the community centre on the Affinity Sutton estate on a Tuesday evening from 5.30pm. Additional funding has also been secured to offer additional activities from February 2016 onwards. We hope to work alongside Youth Association to provide additional opportunities for young people locally. If you would like to find out more about the Youth Association visit their website here.

Free School Meals!

Are you entitled to free school meals? If you claim Income Support, Income Based Job Seekers Allowance, Child Tax Credit, Universal Credit, Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support then you most probably are. A family who is identified as eligible for FSMs but does not take up their entitlement could be missing out on around £420 per year for each child. Speak to your child’s school to find out more!
