Grant help for Shropshire Council residents
Shropshire Council have cash grants available to anyone who is struggling financially, it is not necessary for benefits to be in payment and we will look at each case on its own merits.
The money is aimed at Shropshire householders, especially low-paid working families with children whose finances may have suffered due to the long effect of Covid and lockdowns and who are now struggling to make ends meet.
The council have made it easy to apply over the phone (a paper form is still available on request), one of their advisers will complete the paperwork during the call and a specialist will look to see how they can help and if any further information is needed.
So if you, or someone you know, is having difficulty meeting essential outgoings, call Shropshire Council on 0345 678 9078.
Test and Trace Support Payment
We still need to do all we can to make sure that anyone who is told by NHS Test and Trace Service to stay at home and self-isolate does so to prevent the spread of coronavirus and a £500 Test and Trace Support Payment is still available through Shropshire Council.

If someone doesn’t qualify, or if their financial need is greater, please remember that thee is also a range of other grants available instead and we urge you to encourage your clients to apply if they are in need.
