Safety Net Fund

Apply for the Safety Net Fund

If you have been affected by the Redcar steel works closure either as a direct employee or as part of the supply chain, you may be able to claim assistance from the Safety Net Fund.

The fund is available to all people affected regardless of where they live. It is not restricted to Redcar and Cleveland residents.

What help you can receive
The fund can help if you are experiencing crisis or hardship due to the loss of an earned income as a result of the steel works closure. Payments can be made to cover the following areas:
  • Mortgage/Rent payments
  • Daily living costs such as fuel and utilities
  • Transportation costs (including repayments on vehicles used to seek and travel to employment)
The list is not exhaustive and each application will be considered on its own merits and decided on a discretionary basis by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.

If you are experiencing difficulties in accessing the scheme online or would like further information regarding the Fund, we can provide advice by telephone.
Telephone 01287 612582 Or 01642 771276
