State School Relief Fund
Do you need help?
Keilor Downs College is able to access the State Schools’ Relief Fund programme for assistance for Uniform and school shoes.
All requests are treated sympathetically and in confidence. Assistance is in the form of clothing or footwear sent from our own supply and delivered to your school free of charge or by authorisation to purchase from your school shop, or supplier, on a co-payment basis.
What is the process?
State Schools’ Relief only responds to requests from principals, assistant principals and welfare coordinators.
Parents or Carers who are struggling to provide their child’s uniform need to make an appointment with the school house leader or assistant principal/welfare coordinator to discuss their situation.
Who is eligible?
Any student who is attending a Victorian Government School is eligible for State Schools’ Relief support. Schools can send an application to State Schools’ Relief when they believe that there is need to support a student whose family is facing difficulty in providing the appropriate uniform and footwear for school.
Situations include, but are not limited to:
- Health issues resulting in serious financial difficulties
- House fires where school clothing is lost
- Independent living / homelessness
- Natural disasters
- Serious financial difficulty
