The Household Support Fund was introduced in October 2021, in order to support those most in need this winter during the final stages of economic recovery.

This funding has been made available to cover the period 6 October 2021 to 31 March 2022 inclusive. Applications for this fund have now closed. 

On Wednesday 23 March 2022, the Chancellor announced an extension to the Household Support Fund, to cover the period from April 1 2022 onwards.

We are awaiting further details of the money available for Spring onwards and how the Government wants us to make it available. We will confirm on this page how you may apply for a Household Support Fund (Spring 2022) once those details are known.
