Essential Living Fund

Coronavirus update: Unable to get out to shop?
You could get support from Worcestershire County Council's Here2Help scheme.
For all the Coronavirus updates from our benefits services, press here.

Our Essential Living Fund can provide emergency help if a resident is facing a financial crisis.

Our fund can help with essential food and top up vouchers for gas and electric.

When you apply we may ask to see a bank statement as evidence of your financial situation. We are likely to ask for this if you need help with gas and electric or if you have needed to apply for the fund more than once.

How to apply

You can apply for support over the phone by calling our benefits team, who will discuss your application with you.

Please do not come into Parkside to apply for help if you are high risk, showing cold/flu like symptoms or self-isolating.
