Over 15m people in the UK are in financial hardship with the cost-of-living crisis plunging millions more into poverty. Whilst there is a vast array of support across the public, private and third sectors, the landscape is fragmented and confusing to navigate. These are spread across different websites, with individual eligibility criteria and application processes.

Over 56% of people do not know what support is available or assume they are not entitled to support (Resident Voice Index, 2022). This lack of awareness and complexity of application processes means struggling households miss out on over £16 billion in benefits, discretionary payments and grants.

What is the 'Benefits Calculator'?

  • Answer four simple questions for a quick estimate of how much you could boost your income by each month.
  • After that, it only takes a few minutes to enter more details and get a list of the benefits, payments or vouchers you could qualify for and how you can claim them.
  • Claiming benefits could mean you get government Cost of Living Payments, money towards your heating bills with Warm Home Discount, free school meals and grants to help with paying for school uniforms.

Any information you put into the calculator is confidential and we don’t store it or share it with anyone else!
