Reduced rate broadband
This will apply for those receiving Universal Credit, Pension Credit, Jobseeker’s Allowance or Income Support.
Financial Insecurity Fund
This PKC administered fund helps with fuel debt (gas electricity and one off top ups for oil tanks), it also helps with rural hardship (this applies to anyone who lives outside Perth), broadband debt, rent and council tax debt and also school club/dinner debt. Applications to this fund are taking between 4 and 8 weeks to be processed as we have received an overwhelming number of applications.
This PKC administered fund helps with pretty much anything that is not covered by the community care grant and is always worth making an application to if you cannot find a fund that covers what you are needing help with ie clothing, help with car repairs, car seats for children.
