Help available from the Financial hardship fund

alt=""

We’re continuing to work hard to support our tenants experiencing financial hardship, during this difficult time. We can support with paying rent, help with budgeting, debt and household bills and accessing benefits, employment, education and training.

There is also extra help available if your finances have been directly affected due to Covid-19.  Barnsley Council have been awarded £350,000 as part of the government’s emergency financial hardship funding in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In addition, the Council are matching this with £270,000 of internal funding and the money will be used to help people in the borough who have been directly affected by the pandemic.

You can find more information and see what support is available on the Barnsley Council website.

Our Tenant Support Officers can provide additional advice and guidance on this funding, and others which may be of help and you can contact them on 01226 774270 or by email:  TenantSupportService@berneslaihomes.co.uk.
