Cold Weather Payments Triggered

We recently received information below from Greg Mulholland MP that may be of interest to you.

“I’m writing to you to let you know that ‘Cold Weather Payments’ have been triggered for LS6, LS7, LS16, LS18, LS19 and LS20.

These payments are made to vulnerable and elderly people who receive income support or pension credit. The payments should be made automatically but if this doesn’t happen then please let me know.

The payment is set at £25 per week. It used to be £8.50 per week but was raised to £25 as a temporary measure in the winters of 2008/2009 and 2009/2010. This temporary measure was then made permanent by the coalition government.

There’s some more information about the payments here:

If you’re not eligible then please let people who you think may be eligible know.”
