Because of the weather we've had over the past couple of days, a 'Cold Weather Payment' has been triggered across most of Sherwood.
Cold Weather Payments are payments made to those who are on certain benefits when the temperature drops to 0°C or below for seven consecutive days.
The alert was triggered on 8/2/2021 for the period 7/2/2021 to 13/2/2021.
You do not need to claim the Cold Weather Payment - it will be paid automatically to eligible recipients.
