Financial help available for families
The SCA supports needy
families wanting to take part in a family leg each Easter.
As agreed by the SCA trustees, the
funding categories are described in non-financial terms. These
descriptors were written in consultation with a number of family leg
walkers. They are being used as part of the application process to
help families identify how much to pay.
As a family booking on a family leg of
Student Cross, you are asked to self-declare in one of the following
- Category 1 - If you can
afford to come without becoming stressed or worried about the
financial aspect then you would probably fit into category 1
- Category 2 - If coming on a
family leg would put your family under undue financial strain, and
might prevent you from coming, then you would probably fit into
- Category 3 - If you simply
cannot afford to come without significant help then you are likely
to fit into this category.
For Easter 2018, grants will be given as
Category 2 families: £30 per adult, £15
Category 3 families: £70 per adult, £35
These categories would equate to the
fully waged, low waged and unwaged categories in the non-family,
There will be always be families who are
close to the borders of these categories and there is an element of
discretion and trust that the SCA allows. The SCA Treasurer is
available to talk to if a family is really struggling to decide into
which category they fit.
Contact the SCA treasurer if
you wish to discuss family funding.
