North Lincolnshire Council is providing emergency assistance to help residents who are struggling financially because of Covid-19.

This can be in the form of providing food, helping with energy bills or replacing broken items such as washing machines, fridges or freezers.

Only households whose needs cannot be met in any other way, and who have been severely impacted by the pandemic, are eligible for the funding.

It cannot be used to buy items residents did not own beforehand, and proof of breakdown will be needed.

It also cannot be used to buy items of furniture or carpets.

More information is available on the coronavirus section of our website, or call the Contact Centre on 01724 297000.
