Coronavirus: Beware of the free school meals email scam

Sefton CVS and local partner agencies have been made aware of an email scam that states:
‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.
Please do not respond to it, and delete immediately – and please help spread the word to those local families who may be targeted by this malicious scam. 
All legitimate information relating to free school meals can be found on the gov.uk website here
