DEMSA update: SDRP consultation / BNPL / Income maximisation / Vulnerability ecosystem / Collaborations / Events


I picked this story up on Lincolnshire Live. Tens of thousands more children are becoming eligible for free school meals, with two in five kids in some areas able to get them. A teaching union says it’s “shocking” numbers needing state-funded lunches continue to rise but warns they’re still not reaching all those who need them. Department for Education (DfE) data showed that there were 1.90m state school pupils eligible for free school meals (FSMs) in England this January 2022. This was up by around 160,000 from the 1.74m counted in 2021 and well above the 1.14m recorded in 2016, the earliest year with available figures. It would be interesting to see how many debt advice providers capture this type of information during their income & expenditure assessments.
