What support is available?
The Household Support Fund is for local councils to support vulnerable households in England with global inflationary challenges and the significantly rising cost of living. The funding covers the period 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023.
What can the funding be used for?
The aim of the fund is to support any costs that directly affect a household’s ability to afford or access energy, food and water. The support will cover both immediate and long-lasting savings for the household. This includes, but is not limited to, insulation of hot water tanks, fitting draft excluders to a door, replacing inefficient light bulbs or providing white goods.
What is the deadline?
Funds should be spent or committed before 31 March 2023. You will need to have submitted a request and paid for the products by this date, but it is important to note that you can receive the products after 31 March 2023.
