Residents in Bridlington and the East Riding, who are in need of financial help, as a result of the pandemic, are being urged to apply for financial assistance.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council have been given funding by the government to help those most in need, whose income has be affected by Coronavirus. The new emergency assistance scheme, that has been in effect since August, still has funds available, which people who need help, are being urged to apply for.
The money can be used for things such as gas and electricity bills, food, toiletries, nappies also travel to and from work and pre-booked hospital appointments.
To qualify, people must have experienced, at least a 20% reduction in their income, due to Covid19, and do not have savings available to buy essential items.
