Reminder for those in Warwickshire that if you are receiving disability benefits or income support, you may be entitled to a free £25 Cold Weather Payment from the Government.
A Cold Weather Payment will pay you £25 for each 7-day period of very cold weather (0°C or below) between 1 November and 31 March.
Recently a weather station signalled that the weather had reached the requirements for some areas in Warwickshire.
You do not need to apply to claim for the £25, it will be paid automatically.
