In response to concerns around funeral poverty resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Financial Inclusion team has developed a comprehensive advice leaflet, which contains information on the death registration process, and an overview of the financial considerations for those responsible for making funeral arrangements.
The guidance also highlights where help is available, particularly via the Leeds Welfare Rights Unit who can assist with DWP benefits and the new funeral loan offered by Leeds Credit Union.
In addition to the leaflet, a poster and contact card are also available. Use the following links to download the materials:
