Family support

Community hubs

Community hubs have been created in each district across Lancashire to coordinate support and help which is available for those in need. You can find details of local community hubs on the council website. You can also look out in the COVID-19 bulletin for updated lists of the support they provide.

Welfare Rights Service

During the coronavirus pandemic, any resident in the Lancashire County Council area with significant financial difficulties who has been unable to sort out their benefit problems, can email with their query. Please note this is a temporary service offer which could be restricted or extended at any time, subject to demand.

There is also a financial support guide on the council website with information about help families may be able to get during the current crisis.
