Financial support for residents

Household support fund

The government has launched a new support fund to help those who need it most, including for example, through small grants to meet daily needs such as food, clothing, and utilities.

We are currently awaiting further guidance and will publish more information as soon as it's available. Until then, if you need help paying for essentials, please contact us so we can find the right support for you.

If you have lost income because you have been required to self isolate, you may be eligible for a payment of £500 through the Test and Trace payment scheme.
