Dear Parents and Carers,
If you live in Kensington and Chelsea and you need help due to an emergency or a crisis, you may be entitled to a Local Support Payment. Families who are struggling financially can make an application for additional support via the council’s local support scheme which has been extended to ensure that the council can help those who have been severely impacted by COVID-19 and need help to make ends meet.
Applications can be made online: https://www.rbkc.gov.uk/benefits/benefits-provided-council/local-support-payments or by telephone 020 7745 6464.
Families who are in urgent food need can either be referred or self-refer to the council’s COVID-19 hub. There are a number of options available for providing support depending on the individual circumstances of the family and this could include support from our local food banks. Referrals can be made via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone: 020 7361 4326.
If you do not qualify for a Local Supply Payment, RBKC have compiled a list of other help and advice services.
