Welfare benefits and coronavirus

Many families will be facing more financial hardship because of coronavirus.

Your family may need to apply for extra help, by claiming welfare benefits for the first time or to claim for other benefits. Some of the way the welfare benefits system works is changing. The UK Government have brought in special help to make sure families will continue to be supported. If you already claim benefits you may want advice about what the changes to the benefits system mean for you.

The situation is changing quickly, so for the most up-to-date support you can speak to our Money Advisors through Parentline. They are there to help any parent or carer in Scotland with money worries of any kind.
