COVID Winter Grant Scheme

If you are in financial hardship due to the pandemic you may be eligible for support for food, utility bills (heating, cooking, lighting), water bills for household purposes (including drinking, washing, cooking, central heating, sewerage and sanitary purposes), or other related essentials.

If you currently work with support professionals, such as social and care workers, you are encouraged to work with them to make an application. Alternatively you are welcome to apply online.

PLEASE NOTE You must provide evidence of the benefit that you are on and supporting evidence if you are furloughed.

The COVID Winter Grant Scheme will run from 1 December 2020 to 31 March 2021. You may make more than one claim during this timeframe depending upon your circumstances. The deadline for applications is 15 March 2021. For further information, please see Frequently Asked Questions.
