COVID-19  NCS Support – Claiming benefits

As soon as you have been made redundant, it would be best if you claimed all the benefits you are entitled to. If you sign up for an apprenticeship or study course, make sure you claim any additional support, for example, money towards childcare. If you have lost your job or are working reduced hours, you may be able to claim benefits (>>Click here).
