What happens if my circumstances change?

If your circumstances change you will need to let us know as we may need to change the information held.

You may need to change your details if:

  • there is a change in the benefits you receive
  • your child changes school during the school year (if your child is moving to a school outside Westminster, then you will need to apply to the borough where the school is).

Following the continued roll-out of Universal Credit, if your child is eligible for Free School Meals, they will remain eligible until they finish the phase of schooling they are in (primary or secondary) at the end of March 2025. Work is underway to update the application process to reflect this.

You can email any changes or enquiries to [email protected]
