Winter Payments Available for Families in Need

Posted on

Message from Calderdale Council:

The government recently announced a package of extra targeted financial support for those families most in need across England for the cost of food, energy and water bills and other associated costs.

Read the Government announcement on Gov.UK here

We have contacted all families in Calderdale that are eligible, either by letter or email.  There is no application needed – funding will be awarded automatically once they have provided bank details.  All they need to do is follow the instructions in the letter/email and we will do the rest.

To date we have awarded almost £500k to over 4,500 families.

If you know anybody that has been contacted by us, please reassure them that this is legitimate and encourage them to take action.

Frequently Asked Questions and a link to the secure portal are now live on our website.
