Employment and benefits support

If you are affected by coronavirus or its effect on the economy, there is a wide range of support available.

These pages provide information about the changes the government has brought in to support people who are already claiming benefits, need to claim benefits, or are at risk of losing their job as a result of coronavirus.

Please note: You should not attend the jobcentre unless directed to do so for an exceptional purpose. However, jobcentre staff will still meet vulnerable customers, including those fleeing domestic abuse.

Use the links at the top of this page to find the information you need.

These pages will continue to be updated. Please check here regularly for updates on the arrangements the Department for Work and Pensions is making to support those who are affected by coronavirus.
