Discretionary Hardship Grant (hackney)

This can help towards the costs of food, utilities, household items, travel, and phone and internet access for those who have suffered a sudden financial shock or face unexpected costs and require emergency help. You must already be receiving Council Tax Reduction and still be in hardship to receive this payment. It is awarded on a case-by-case basis. Tel: 0208 356 3000 and ask to apply for ‘discretionary crisis support’. https://hackney.gov.uk/discretionary-hardship-scheme
