Household Support Fund

The Household Support Fund is currently closed. We are waiting to hear from Surrey County Council if there will be any new funds allocated. We will keep this web page updated.

Funding has been made available by the government’s Department for Works and Pensions (DWP) to support Surrey residents who are most in need and struggling to afford energy, water bills and other essential expenditure this winter.

The Household Support Fund is a national scheme and is part of a wider support package helping to relieve financial pressure on households with a low income and will support residents who are most in need this winter during the period of economic recovery.

A third of this fund will go towards supporting free school meals and foodbanks, a third will go to pensioners on Council Tax Support and the remainder is available to spend on supporting households hit the most by the cost of living crisis.
