An additional £63 million has been confirmed by government today (Thursday 11 June) to be distributed to local authorities in England to help those who are struggling to afford food and other essentials due to coronavirus. 

Local authorities are already working hard to support those who are vulnerable and this additional funding will contribute to that work. 

Many have existing mechanisms to provide this support in a way that suits the needs of their community. This includes provision of cash payments, food vouchers, or alternative means of support. 

This funding will sit alongside the alongside the £6.5 billion of extra support the government is providing through the welfare system to ensure the most vulnerable in our society are protected throughout this crisis.
