Consultation description

Following the introduction of Universal Credit, we need to revise eligibility criteria for free school meals in Wales and are consulting on our proposals. 

We are proposing to introduce an earned income threshold of £7,400 for Universal Credit claimants who want to claim free school meals for their children. We are also proposing transitional protection for families affected by the change.
