    With the furlough scheme and the temporary uplift in Universal Credit ending at the end of September, we know people might be worried about the future.

    We launched a campaign last year to encourage residents, including shared owners, to talk to us if they were struggling with paying their rent and managing their finances. If you let us know if you’re struggling, we will help. We have specialist teams who can make sure you are getting all the benefits you may be entitled to, talk to you about managing your rent account and who can signpost you to specialist help with your finances if needed.

    Worried about the end of furlough? Talk to us now

    If these changes will affect you, one simple thing you can do now is to check what benefits you might be entitled to by using our online calculator www.westkent.entitledto.co.uk/Home/Start

    If your employment situation has changed in recent months, we also have a training and employment team who can advise you on training opportunities, improving your CV and interview techniques and who can help secure you a new job.

    Email help@wkha.org.uk to talk about your rent and westkentworks@wkha.org.uk to get in touch with the training and employment team.

    Don’t leave it too late and make tough times tougher- if you talk, we will listen.
