Household Support Fund

All you want to know about the Household Support Fund is here.

We have received funds from the Department for Work and Pensions to support households in hardship.

April to September 2024

Many households will no longer get the DWP Cost of Living payments, so this fund must support more households.

If you receive Council Tax Reduction, you can get one of these payments:

  • Households with children £100.
  • Households with known disability £100.
  • Singles/couples with no children or disability £50.

Note: For households with children and a known disability, only one payment of £100 can be awarded.

Before you apply, double check the sort code and account number you enter is correct. If it is wrong, it will delay your payment.

Apply now

Closing date: 30th September 2024.

After you register, you should get a payment within 7 working days. We are very busy, so please do not contact us until this period has passed.
