These claims are now to be made to your Local Council in this case Birmingham. It is my understanding that claims are to be made online by visiting www.birmingham.gov.uk/lwp the information on how to proceed will appear there, along with the application link.
Please note that any successful claim will receive ASDA vouchers, white goods and or furniture.
There will be no cash so there may be an issue for Electricity and Gas Top Up's, as I understand Asda may not provide this service.
The Service I understand is live as from today, however, if you cannot access the internet for any reason, I suggest that you go to your Local Neighbourhood Office for more information or indeed contact your Local Councillor as this scheme is now administered by Birmingham City Council. To find your Local Councillor visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/councillors
