COLD WEATHER PAYMENT
Individuals will get £25 for each seven day period of very cold weather between November 1 and March 31 in their area.
People will get a payment if the average temperature in their area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees celsius or below over seven consecutive days.
