The last year has been tough for many residents due to the pandemic. Households have been hit financially by redundancies and furlough and have found themselves with a day to day struggle to afford food and manage the costs of fuel bills.
Throughout the year South Oxfordshire has been providing supporting via government funding to those who have been hit the hardest, and this support is still available.
If any resident is struggling financially the council is urging them to get in touch, and to do so before they reach crisis point. The Community Hub team are working alongside Citizens advice to offer help in the form of advice, supermarket and fuel vouchers or through the direct payment of energy or water bills.
The support is there for all households: residents needing help do not have to be in receipt of any government benefits and can be given financial support through this funding more than once.
They can also contact Citizens Advice – 0808 278 7907.
The deadline for accessing financial support from the Covid Support Grant is Friday 18 June.
