Back To School Clothing and Footwear Allowance
This is a payment from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance scheme, aimed at supporting families with the cost of school uniforms and footwear.
It is a means tested payment so there are income limits that apply:
In 2021, the rate of payment was €150 per child aged 4 – 11 and for children aged 12 -22 it was €275.
The scheme operates from the 21st June to the 30th September.
