With every-day costs rising, it is important to know where to get help if you need it. We have gathered together some useful links of support that the local community can offer during this time.
Cost of Living Payment
If you claim certain benefits or tax credits, you may be eligible for an extra payment to help with the cost of living. This website offers more advice on how to get support and discounts that may be available to you. See what cost of living support you could be eligible for.
Holidays, Acitivites and Food Programme
The Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) supports the wellbeing of children between 5 – 16 years by providing a variety of activities and food during school holidays. They offer activities and food for children who receive benefits-related free school meals during the Spring (Easter), Summer, Autumn (October) and Winter (Christmas) holidays across the county.
Feeding Ashfield is a network of local food banks, food clubs, allotments and other organisations working collaboratively with the aim of providing improved access to food and educational opportunities throughout the district.
