Free College Meals
If you received free meals at school and are now aged 16-18, or are 19-24 and have an Educational Health & Care Plan (EHCP), you may be entitled to free college meals. To check eligibility and apply, visit Hampshire County Council's Free Meals portal.
Support with Childcare
If you are under 20 years old, the Government's 'Care to Learn' scheme can help with childcare costs while you study.
You may be eligible for a subsidised or fully funded travel pass, or for help with essential course costs. Payments of up to £1,200 a year are offered to young people who meet the criteria of the Government's defined vulnerable groups.
