Household Fuel Grants

The Fuel Poverty Fund is to help those in need in Herefordshire, specifically with the rising cost of household fuel.  Herefordshire Community Foundation can help those who find themselves in need.

Applications MUST be made by a professional working with those in need. You cannot directly apply for yourself and grant payments will be made via the referring professional.


Herefordshire Community Foundation wants to help those in need. The Citizen Advice Bureau, foodbanks, family support workers, health workers, social prescribers and other care professionals can identify and assess the situation. It is they who should make the application by following the link below.


  • Grants are up to £500. Only one grant will be awarded per household each year. Grant payments will be made direct to the energy supplier.
