Renters: Thousands of £250 grants still available to help with living costs
One-off grants of £250 are still available to renters in Islington to help them cover essential living costs. It doesn’t matter who you rent your home from – a private landlord, a housing association or the council – you could be eligible claim one of the £250 payments.
You will need to act fast as the money is being given away on a first-come, first-served basis by Islington Council. The grants are intended to help people who are struggling to cover all their bills, so conditions apply – you must be renting your home and there are limits on total household income and savings.
You can find all the information and instructions on how to apply at islington.gov.uk/help250 and please only apply if you meet all the criteria.
