Financial Support & Advice for Those in Need
The Council wants to assure the residents of the borough that they will work jointly with the local Job Centre, Citizens Advice Bureau and the DWP in these unprecedented times to support our residents.
Currently the Council already provides emergency support for individuals experiencing hardship and will continue to do whatever it can to assist our residents where they experience additional hardship.
