Help available to pay for basic household essentials

    Help available to pay for basic household essentials

    The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is continuing to put a huge financial strain on some people. Employment situations are changing rapidly and for some, income now no longer covers what you need, or you have lost their jobs completely. 

    Help is available. If you, or someone you know, is worrying about money and how to pay for basic household essentials, please apply for extra assistance through funding that has been made available via your district council's hardship fund. 

    To find out more about what support is available in Devon, including how to access local financial support, where to find foodbanks and community larders, and what to do if you’re on a low income and need to self-isolate, please visit the Devon County Council website.
