Household Support Fund
We have received grant funding from Central Government to help households with significantly rising living costs.
Please note: this funding covers the period from 1 April 2022 to 30 September 2022.
These funds are currently being allocated automatically to low income families, with vouchers for food and energy being sent to them. There is no need to apply for this support.
We will also be working with local charities who provide advice and support to households who may be struggling and food to vulnerable households.
If you are in crisis and in need of food, heat or other essential items, and you do not receive assistance under the Household Support Fund, you should consider applying for our emergency assistance fund.
There is also further advice if you are struggling with the cost of living on our help with living costs page.
