Household Support Fund
The Government has provided additional funding, known as the Household Support Fund to help with important things like gas, electricity, and food during 2023/24.
What the Fund will cover
If you are struggling with the increase in the cost of living, the Fund can help you with:
- food and housekeeping (including toiletries, baby essentials, etc)
- other essential bills (mobile phones, top-ups, broadband charge, etc)
- gas and electricity
- clothing – including school uniforms
- essential white goods
- beds and bedding package
- carpets – limited choice will be available
Please note the HSF is not a cash provision and any help with water or phone bills will be by way of a supermarket voucher so that the money you normally spend on food can be put towards these bills. Gas and electric help will be by way of pre-payment top-up vouchers or an energy card for people who pay by direct debit or other means.
