Help with benefits
Dedicated Covid-19 Helpline for Powys residents and businesses.
Telephone number 01597 826345 Open 9am - 1pm
Find out about Grants and Reliefs, Benefits and Awards, Managing your Money and Debt Advice, and other help and support.
Financial support is being provided to business affected by the firebreak action.
We are waiting final guidance from Welsh Government as to the details of the schemes that will be put in place. Where possible payments will be made automatically. Powys businesses are asked not to contact the county council at this stage but to give us time to work up the arrangements. Information will be publicised as soon as it is available.
We are committed to helping you ensure you can maximise your income, reduce your costs and deal with debts, bills and borrowing. We work with partners across Powys who provide specialist help to do this but we also have our own team of officers who can visit and / or assist you by phone.
