This includes helping with such things as rent deposits and removal costs as well as mitigating the impact of welfare reform.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>These payments are discretionary and are made by local authorities who have a duty to act fairly and reasonably when considering applications. The Department does however provide on line guidance to Local Authorities in England and Wales.

DWP offers a childcare voucher salary sacrifice scheme which allows employees to vary their contract of employment to give up part of their salary in return for vouchers. They then use these vouchers to pay for their own childcare. Employees can sacrifice any amount from £1 up to £243 a month dependent on tax rate. Currently the scheme has 1722 users.</p> more like this
