However, the appeal can only be made within seven days.
With the food vouchers, the amount that people can receive depends on the size of the household.
Although the majority of people will not qualify for the full £160 amount many will be able to claim some support when buying food.
The vouchers can be spent at a wide variety of supermarkets such as Aldi, Iceland, Waitrose, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, McColls, and Farmfoods.
People who are eligible will receive an e-voucher and will need to go online and convert it into a gift card for one of the supermarkets.
People will be able to apply for the vouchers through referrals from social workers, neighbourhood housing officers, housing-related support workers, income management officers, or schools.
