If you are in immediate financial difficulty due to the coronavirus and have less than £1,000 savings, you can apply for a crisis grant of £500 per household towards essential living expenses, such as food and bills.
Do not apply for a grant from a charity or trust unless you've checked what you can claim. Explore your options with your occupational therapist, care manager or local disability information and advice organisation.
Few organisations will give funds for debts or pay for items you've already bought. If you already have debt or fear you are about to, seek professional advice. Talk to your local Citizens Advice or The National Debtline.
