Help for households in Sandwell struggling financially this winter

A grant scheme has been launched by Sandwell Council to help households who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

A total of £1.4 million has been made available to Sandwell Council from the government to help those most affected by Covid-19.

The grant is available for food and utilities – to buy food or help pay household energy and water bills – as well as other essentials like warm clothing, toiletries, sanitary products, blankets and sometimes towards other essential household equipment.

Applications for the grant can be made online at http://www.sandwell.gov.uk/wintergrant or those with no access to internet can call 0121 569 2266 to apply.

The grant is available throughout the winter until March and households can apply a maximum of twice during that period.
