This can be claimed up to a month before starting a job, and is worth up to £13,000 a year for a family with two children. Where claimants face difficulty in paying their costs upfront, Jobcentres will use the Flexible Support Fund, which is a non-repayable award.

As part of the NHS’s cash increase of £33.9bn a year by 2023-24 and outlined in their long-term plan, the NHS will provide better support for people with dementia through a more active focus on supporting people in the community. And over three years (2017-18 to 2019-20) we have given councils access to up to around £10bn more dedicated funding for adult social care.</p>The Spending Review represents an opportunity to consider public spending priorities in the round, and the Treasury will be working closely with departments on funding issues, and with a renewed focus on delivering outcomes. more like this

star this property answer text The Government has pledged to continue to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the parliament. It has also set out its plans for English agriculture policy after we have left the EU, including phasing down direct payments from 2021 over seven years. Agriculture is a devolved matter, so it is for the Welsh Government to decide whether to continue with direct payments in Wales. We will continue to engage with the Welsh Government on arrangements for domestic replacement funding after 2022, but have already committed not to simply apply the Barnett Formula to agriculture funding in England. This means that funding will not just be allocated according to the population of each nation. more like this
