ARE YOU RECEIVING, OR HAVE APPLIED FOR, UNIVERSAL CREDIT?
Get a one-off payment if you are struggling due to COVID-19
You may be able to get a one-off payment to help you buy essential food and fuel.
There is an emergency payment for those eligible for Universal Credit who are facing further immediate, financial hardship due to COVID-19 and have no other assistance available. If you have no income as a result of losing your job or ability to work, you may qualify for a one-off payment.
The payment is a grant so it does not need to be paid back. It does not replace any other form of support from the Government.
Please click the link below for more information.
In an effort to keep everyone safe and well we have taken the decision to close the children's centre until further notice.
We will still be operating our FareShare scheme on Friday and we ask that only families who have previously attended this session come along. This is to ensure that our families who are most in need can access food at this time. If you normally attend but can't this week due to self isolation please contact us on Friday morning before 9:30am on 020 8695 5915 and we will see if we can deliver it to you.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
We aren't often closed but when we are.......
