It remains incredibly important that we all carry on contributing to the effort to keep our community safe from COVID19. We have seen a massive reduction in car journeys and journeys made on public transport across the borough, an indication that we are listening and adapting our lifestyles.
Help with Council Tax for Those in Need
Kingston Council has one of the most generous council tax reduction schemes in London to take care of the most vulnerable. I know that many people in our borough will be going through a hard time at the moment, so I wanted to share information on how you can apply for this if you are in need.
Kingston Council have a hotline which is manned 9-5 on weekdays which can help you through the process of applying should you need to: 0208 547 5007.
You can find out more about how to fill out the online form here.

Community Motors remain open with a skeleton staff to provide repairs for key workers during this difficult time.
More information on the services they are providing can be found here.
Community Brain are running a community survey to find out what life is like in our borough. Community Brain do great work and organise many of the events that make our borough a great place to live.
