Benefits and money advice
Advice to help you if you're made redundant
Redundancy is a stressful event in your life and it’s important to find practical advice to help you cope if you’re made redundant. Having a plan in place can help to ease the stress and give you a more positive focus.
You might need your redundancy payment to last for a while. And you could be asked to show how you've been spending your money if you make a claim for benefits.
Try creating a budget to make your money last - you can use our free online budgeting tool to get started.

Update your CV
Spend time making sure your CV is up to date, and adapt your application for each role so it's clear how you meet the job description.
If you're asked for a cover letter, make sure you include the reasons why you're applying, how you meet the role requirements and any experience you have.
Remember, there's lots of handy job search websites you can use and online platforms like LinkedIn can help you build your professional network too.
