Families with little money to pay bills have been able to claim free assistance from their local council since October 2021.

The funding is set to run until March 2022, unless councils exhaust their portion of the pot soonerso it’s essential to apply for help immediately.

Each council has been awarded a different amount of cash depending on its size and need, and how each council chooses to hand out the funding is up to them individually.

Por exemplo, no Spelthorne, residents can grab a cash payment of up to £80 enquanto Runnymede residents can grab a maximum of £800 towards essential costs such as white goods and repairs.

If you’re not sure which council is in charge of your area, you can tap your postcode into the government’s local council checker tool to find out.

The most common types of support provided are supermarket vouchers, fuel vouchers e one-off payments.

The majority of voucher recipients are automatically identified from council records and sent out, but some may need to contact the council if they believe they meet requirements.

Ealing council will be supplying these vouchers in two stagesthe first payment will be February 22 and the second will be March 22.

Em fevereiro, the vouchers will be £25 per eligible person, and £50 per eligible person in March.

So a family with two children would receive two £25 supermarket vouchers in February and two £50 vouchers in March, por exemplo.

These vouchers are being sent out to the following eligible households:

  • Children attending Ealing schools eligible for free school meals due to low income;

  • Families in receipt of council tax reduction and/or housing benefits with children under five.

The vouchers are being issued periodically, prior to school holidays.
