Support for Redbridge residents
The government’s furlough scheme recently came to an end. Redbridge Council understands that it’s a worrying time for a lot of people, especially as it also coincides with the end of the Universal Credit uplift of £20 a week. Both these measures could push more people into unemployment and reduce incomes even further. The council wants to reassure any resident affected that they are here to support them.
Please get in touch as they have lots of services that can help, including:
Support to get back into work, training, apprenticeships or volunteering opportunities, through the council’s free Work Redbridge service open to all residents aged 18+, whatever your circumstances
Help and advice with money management, including managing your money, paying bills or dealing with debt
Support with Housing benefit and Council Tax reduction
