As you are supporting friends, neighbours and communities throughout the community response to Covid-19 we know that many of you will come across people and families in need of financial support.
There are many support services and organisations across Kirklees who can respond to this need, such as the Local Welfare Provision team, local hardship funds or Third Sector Leaders Kirklees.
If you are supporting someone (or know someone) who is in financial difficulty as a result of Covid-19, we recommend that you inform your local Anchor Organisation about this and ask for help.
Your Anchor Organisation should be aware of local hardship funds and how to access them. If a specific circumstance is particularly difficult, they will also be well placed to ask for help or find support where necessary.
You could also consider making a referral through the Covid-19 Community Response helpline. This should help to identify any additional support needs.
There is also financial support available through Third Sector Leaders Kirklees. You can find out more about this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to your Anchor Organisation.
