The Government has confirmed today that parents, who are receiving the Pandemic Unemployment Payment, will be entitled to claim the Back To School Clothing and Footwear allowance this year.

The Department of Social Protection is making 153 million euro available to include parents who have lost their jobs due to Covid-19 - that's up from 53 million last year.

Mayo FG Deputy Alan Dillon says this will ensure that many more families in Mayo can benefit from the allowance this year, to help towards return to school costs.

 

Applications can be made at www.mywelfare.ie and the closing date is the 30th September.
