Household Support Fund
We know that many of our residents are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the cost of living crisis.
Further funding has been made available by the Government through the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
The new fund will run from April 2023 to March 2024 and is aimed at supporting households in the most need with food, energy, water, other household bills and wider essentials.
The new Household Support Fund is now available. Please apply at the link below:
At times, due to the high volumes of claims received, it could take longer than expected to process them. At these times, please bear with us whilst we endeavour to process them as quickly as we can.
Please note that due to limited funding, if you have received an award from the fund within the last six months, you will not receive another award at this time. Any applications received will be refused. This is so that we can provide assistance to as many of our residents as possible.
You can find contact details for other organisations who can help with the cost of living crisis at our Support Directory.
