Household Support Fund

The Household Support Scheme for Summer 2022

We have received almost £2.9 million from the Government's Household Support Fund to support vulnerable households and individuals. 

We will be distributing the funding in accordance with Government guidelines.

This support will be allocated to fund:

  • Food vouchers for children entitled to free school meals which was distributed for the Summer Half Term
  • Food vouchers for children entitled to free school meals during school Summer Holiday 
  • £100 for Pension aged customers in receipt of Council Tax Support
  • Hardship payments for food and or utility bills for others who are in significant financial difficulty through a supported application process. 

We are now finalising the process to allow the administration of the funding.

The scheme will be open mid July 2022 and will close on 30 September 2022.

As it is available, more information will be added to this page and our social media, including what you need to do to apply for assistance.
