Household Support Fund

The Household Support Fund is a national scheme funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and is part of a wider support package helping to provide support to vulnerable households in most need of help with significantly rising living costs.

The Fund is particularly intended to support those households who may not be eligible for the other support government has recently made available but who are nevertheless in need and who require crisis support with the cost of food and water bills, essential costs related to energy, and with wider essential costs.
