PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

If you’re struggling with your finances, there are lots of ways you can access support. Camden Council is here to help, so please get in touch.

  • Check you’re claiming the benefits you are entitled to – including a reduction in your council tax through the Council’s Council Tax Support scheme.
  • If you have no income or money in your account, you can apply for a one-off payment of around £50 through the Council’s Local Welfare Assistance Fund to buy groceries or pay a bill.
  • If you’re self-isolating and on a low income, you may be eligible for a £500 Test and Trace Support Payment.
  • If you’re worried about your ability to pay existing debts like a mortgage, credit card bills or a loan, speak to your bank, credit card or loan provider to request a payment holiday.

To find out more, visit camden.gov.uk/coronavirus or call the Council on 020 7974 4444 (option 9).
