Household Support Fund

Councils across the country have been provided with funding through the Household Support Scheme. This is to support households on a low income with food and utilities during winter. 

We will provide eligible households with extra financial support in the last two weeks of November 2022. 


You are eligible for a payment if you:

  • received a council tax reduction on 5 October 2022, and
  • had children included in your claim

The support you will get

We will make an award of £80.00 per child directly into your bank account.

We will also be making payments of £100.00 to some low income households who have not received support through this scheme in the past.  

How to get your payment

If we already have your bank details we will pay this automatically. You do not need to contact us.

If we don't have your bank details, we will write to you. Once you've received your letter, you can use the button below to apply:

Funding has also been allocated to increase the assistance that you can get through local food banks and local partner organisations.
