Government is providing funding to local Councils, for Councils to be able to decide how to best utilise that money for their area.
Notts County Council will use that Government funding to support Free School Meals as a part of their service, working with schools, as well as having the scope to offer direct support to others who are in need.
A more flexible, localised approach rather than a blanket national policy, leading to better outcomes.
So for all of the hatred, all of the vitriol that's been directed at Government this week - guess what!? Nobody is missing out on anything!! In fact it's a better service than the vote last week even asked for!
Have a look on the Council's website for more information
