Coronavirus Financial Advice Thread

Given how heavy things are getting it feels a bit…insensitive to discuss finances in the main thread, but at the same time lots of us are facing hardship. Also, given the speed the threads understandably go at thought it might make more sense to have a separate point of reference.

Thinking stuff like advice on:

  • how to claim wages for those laid off
  • pay for those in work but vulnerable
  • SSP
  • applying for ESA and other benefits
  • tax, etc
  • where to look for help if self-employed
  • help with mortgages, rent
  • fundraising ideas
  • cancelling/deferring direct debits
  • grants, ethical loans, etc
  • pro-bono/subsidised help
  • supporting other GBOLs businesses
