Don’t miss deadline
Many families in Barrhead and the surrounding areas are struggling financially in these difficult times with many cruel and often unfair cuts to their benefits. The latest threatened benefit cuts are going to make things even harder for these families. I also know how lots of people rely on tax credits just to help them survive as they face such hardship. I understand there are more than 4,000 residents in East Renfrewshire as well as an astonishing 13,000 in Renfrewshire who should be going online now to claim and make sure they don’t miss out on that vital cash lifeline. Claims have to be renewed by 31st July. Help and information on tax credit renewals is available on www.gov.uk.
