Cold Weather Payments are made to recipients of selected benefits. To trigger the payments, the average temperature at a nearby weather station must be recorded as, or forecast to be, 0°C or below for seven consecutive days.
An alert was triggered in South Shropshire on 6/12/2022 for the period 6/12/2022 to 12/12/2022.
