The Household Support Fund was created to help those in need.

If we respond requesting further information, you must respond to us within 5 days or your application will be closed

As more households have been affected by the rising cost of living and energy prices, we have introduced  some guidance around our ‘first offer’ support to help us in reaching as many households as possible. All households regardless of their situation will be awarded an amount that will vary dependent of household composition.
 
The funding can be used for support / assistance with:

  • Food
  • Gas and electricity
  • Water
  • Essential household items (white goods, small appliances)
  • Other essentials (warm clothing and bedding)

Priority is given to supporting Food and Fuel, however other household essentials can be considered.

The breakdown of the award is detailed below. In addition, where a trusted organisation or professional has given additional consideration and assessment of need and feels that additional support is required, then a ‘ secondary offer’ can be made.

Food Support

Where a household needs assistance with food, the following amounts to cover a week’s provision will be awarded (max. two weeks support in the 1st offer):

  • Single Adult: £25.00
  • Couple: £50.00
  • Addition for each child in household: £15.00

Fuel/energy Support

Where a household needs assistance with fuel/energy, the following amounts to cover a week’s provision will be awarded (max. two weeks support in the 1st offer):

  • Single Adult: £40.00
  • Couple: £60.00
  • Addition for each child in household: £15.00
