LTCT Launches £100,000 ‘School Essentials Grant’ for Pharmacists

The Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust (LTCT) has announced the launch of a new scheme to support pharmacists and their families during the back-to-school period.

Opening at 9 am on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, the ‘School Essentials Grant’ is designed to alleviate financial pressure for people working in community pharmacies
with young children during one of the most costly times of the year.

The scheme will see the charity provide up to £100,000 of support to pharmacists in need of financial aid.

Eligible families can apply online to receive £150 per school-age child, up to a maximum of three children per household. This grant can be used for essential
expenses such as new school uniforms, stationery, or travel passes.

The application window will remain open until September 1 or until the fund has been depleted. Hence, families are encouraged to apply as soon as they can.
