Help for residents struggling financially from Covid-19

on Tue, 22/09/2020 - 3:59pm

The government has provided some emergency assistance funding to support any Vale residents that are struggling financially as a result of the pandemic.

The Vale are working closely with local information and advice centres to help identify residents who might be in this situation and to help provide support.

If you become aware of anyone in this situation, please signpost them to one of the following:

  •     Citizens Advice – 0300 3309042
  •     Wantage Independent Advice Centre – 01235 765348

It’s important to manage their expectations as there is strict criteria that residents must meet to receive support, and it’s important they’re aware that any support they receive is emergency support whilst the Vale work with them along with other relevant agencies to put in place an ongoing package of help.
