The current round of the Household Support Fund is open for applications between 2nd October 2023 and 31st March 2024. This is open to anyone who is not part of a family where children receive free school meals, and is for those struggling with rising costs of living as well as people in receipt of benefits. You will receive the grant in the form of food, fuel or cash vouchers.

Households with pensioners, disabled people, carers, or four or more people can receive £240. All other households can receive £120.

Due to very high demand, it may take up to 2 WEEKS  to process your application. To ensure our team can focus on processing the large number of applications we receive, please do not contact us to chase up your application until at least two weeks have passed.
Thank you.
