The Welsh Government have announced financial support payments to those affected by Storm Christoph and the flooding in Skewen.
Support is available for households:
- whose internal homes have been flooded by Storm Christoph and the Skewen mine working floods. OR
- who have been evacuated by the Council Coal Authority or other emergency service for more than 24 hours
Households that have been affected can apply for a payment of £500 (for those who have insurance) or £1,000 (for those without insurance cover).
All payments will be paid by BACS directly into your bank account. You can upload photos of the internal flood damage to your house to assist the application if you have them available - this is not mandatory. You can apply here:
