Hardship Policy

Hardship Policy

Where parents/guardians raise concerns regarding financial difficulty, the group shall respond according to the following policy;

1. Deferment of payment or payment in instalments

Sectional leaders may, at their own discretion, offer deferments of payments or payments in instalments as appropriate. The treasurer shall be informed of this.

2. Sectional hardship budget

All sections shall have a budget of £25 per term, agreed in advance with the executive, which may be allocated to individuals at the leader’s discretion to ease financial constraints for individuals. This shall be discussed with the treasurer.

3. Exceptional cases

Requirements for greater amounts or repeat cases shall be referred to the group executive for discussion.
