Help for pensioners

We have been given money from the government, as part of the Household Support Fund, to help pensioners with rising living costs.

We will be sending out letters from Tuesday 30 August 2022 to approximately 8,000 pensioners (one per household).

This is specifically for pensioners who are aged 66 or over by 30 September 2022 and who:

  • are in receipt of Council Tax reduction
  • have previously been supported through our Helping Hand service

The letter includes a barcode for £90, which must be claimed via the Post Office.

View more information about the voucher scheme.

If you or someone you know is struggling with rising living costs and has not been supported by the scheme, please contact our Helping Hand team.
