Households with minimum security, social welfare, or social assistance are helped financially at the start of school with the “Schulstartklar!” campaign. The “Schulstart Plus” campaign provides additional support.
This is how significant the price differences are for school supplies
Because of inflation, starting school is a substantial financial burden for many families in Austria.
Vouchers for school supplies at the start of school
The “Schulstartklar!” campaign helps these families. Households on minimum income, social welfare, or social assistance will receive a letter with which they can pick up vouchers for school supplies worth 80 euros at the Volkshilfe, Caritas and Kinderfreunde pickup points until September 23.
These vouchers can be redeemed at Libro and Pagro Discounters throughout Austria until October 1.
