SWAN activists in Liverpool are campaigning alongside Liverpool Against the Cuts (LATC) to reverse the council’s recent decision to scrap school uniform grants for 24,000 of the poorest children and young people across the region. Cutting the grants will mean parents on very low incomes no longer receive £20 per year towards the cost of a primary school uniform and £40 for secondary school uniforms. SWAN Liverpool and LATC believe the cuts to school uniform grants are both unnecessary and unfair. The cuts to school uniform grants comes as another direct attack by Liverpool City Council on poor working class families.
