About The Household Support Fund

This Fund usually awards grants of up to £500.

To access a grant, an online application will need to be made on behalf of an individual/family in need by a referral organisation or care professional such as Citizens Advice Bureau, local food bank, social worker, debt advisor or employment coach. Payments are then made direct to the utility company or via your pre-paid meter.


If you are interested in applying to this Fund, please contact us to discuss.
All applications must be received by 18th March 2024. Applications submitted after this date will not be processed.
