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 whilst the cost of living is increasing.

As part of that assistance, we will provide eligible households with extra financial support in the first two weeks of April 2023. 


You are eligible for a payment if you:

  • received a council tax reduction on 28 March 2023, and
  • had children included in your claim

The support you will get

You'll receive £20.00 per child.

How to get your payment

We will pay your award directly into your bank account. This will happen automatically, so you do not need to contact us.

Further support

We are currently developing the plans for further assistance for the remainder of the financial year. Once they have been agreed, further details will be available here.
