At Together Housing, we know many of our customers’ income and employment has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. We’ve talked to many of you about difficulties with bills, fuel costs, day to day living expenses and paying your rent. Our expert advisors continue to offer support and advice to manage your rent, maximise your income and help you into employment and training.

With two Government changes happening soon, we’d like to offer you the chance to contact us for help and advice.

These changes are due to happen in October:

  • Ending of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, also called the furlough scheme. If you’re on furlough your employer will explain to you what happens next. Whether you’re still working or not, if you have money issues, you can contact us.
  • Ending of the £20 per week Universal Credit increase. Universal Credit was increased by £20 per week from April 2020 due to the pandemic. As of 9th September, this is due to end in October. A message on your journal will tell you when Universal Credit will go down by £86.67 per month. If you don’t have an online account, you’ll be contacted by phone, text or email – whatever you’ve told Universal Credit is your preferred method of communication.

Whatever your situation, we understand if these changes cause difficulties for you – you may want to discuss what rent you can afford to pay, see if you’re eligible for any benefits, have help with fuel costs and budgeting or help with steps towards finding work or accessing education and training.

Our expert, friendly advisors are here to help you.

Contact us and we will offer you advice as soon as possible.
