The Secretary of State regularly meets with the Chancellor to discuss the Government’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have set out an unprecedented package of financial support to help the country through the coronavirus pandemic, and multi-generational households are able to access these, including the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), the Self Employed Income Support package and Statutory Sick Pay. This support continues to be provided, with the CJRS running until the end of October. The Government has also confirmed an additional £63 million for local authorities to help those who are struggling financially due to the impact of COVID-19. This will allow authorities to step in and provide discretionary financial help to those facing severe hardship due to covid-19 and help them to pay for food and other necessities.
