Essential Living Fund
Coronavirus update: Unable to get out to shop? Support may be available from Worcestershire County Council's Here2Help scheme or the Government if you are an 'extremely vulnerable person'. See the Support section of our main Coronavirus page. For all the Coronavirus updates from our benefits services, press here.
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak we have made our Essential Living Fund more accessible so emergency help is readily available to our residents.
Our fund offers help with essential food and goods vouchers like top up vouchers for utilities.
If you are financially effected by this outbreak and need help you no longer need to provide bank statements to apply for the fund.
You can apply for support over the phone by calling our benefits team, who will discuss your application with you. Here are our contact details.
Please do not come into Parkside to apply for help if you are high risk, showing cold/flu like symptoms or self-isolating.
