What’s the resident support fund?
Brent Council has launched a Resident’s Support Fund to help residents suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19.
The fund worth £2.6 million will be broken down into two strands:
A grant fund
An interest free loan
These will be available to residents to request support with a mortgage, rent, council tax arrears, increased household expenditure and paying off debts. The fund will also support residents who do not have access to a computer or cannot afford home internet and need employment support with new skills and training.
