COVID-19  National Careers Support – Claiming benefits

If you are suffering financial hardship due to COVID-19, 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 (e.g. money towards childcare). And if you have lost your job or are working reduced hours, you may be able to claim benefits (>>Click here).
