Hardship payments – RBKC

Please find the latest update from RBKC here:

” If you have been affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and feel you need financial support, you may be entitled to support through the Council’s Hardship Fund. The Council has announced that it will boost this fund by £500,000, on top of funding from central government.

This is an existing fund which the Council has had in place for a number of years, but the criteria are being expanded to ensure that we can help more people who have been severely impacted from COVID-19 and need our support to make ends meet. More details will be published here next week on how to access these funds and details of the current scheme are available on our Local support payments webpage.

You can also apply over the telephone on 020 7745 6464 between 8.30 am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday. We are seeing an increase in calls, we are dealing with them as quickly as possible.”
