Announcement : Perth & Kinross Council has created a new Financial Insecurity Fund
The Council has created a new fund to help tackle financial insecurity and support households with essential needs and priority debts over the winter. The Financial Insecurity Fund has been created using the Council’s share of £20 million provided by the Scottish Government for this purpose.
All households that are in receipt of Council Tax Reduction and that have children under six-years-old, as of 11 December 2020, will receive a one-off payment of £80 for each eligible child.
