As Sainsburys’ chosen Charity of the Year, the Irish Centre was recently presented with a cheque for £1000 for their Welfare Projects. Accepting the cheque on behalfe of the Centre is Teresa Intavarant, Advice & Support Service Manager and Moira Terrill, Haringey irish Pensioners Group.
From 7th November 2016 the benefit cap is reduced and is set at a different level depending on whether you live inside or outside London:
- £442.31 a week if you are a couple or have children and live in London
- £296.35 a week if you are a single person and live in London
The benefit cap will impact significantly on client’s ability to manage, not least their ability to afford their rent. Each local authority should have a provision to assist people affected by this change.
