Household Support Fund Now Open to New Applicants

The extended Household Support Fund (HSF) is now open to new applicants.

It’s a voucher scheme to support households who are struggling to afford energy, food and other related household bills and expenses.

The fund is initially open only to applications from residents who haven’t previously received vouchers / support from the Household Support Fund (since November 2021).

The funds are not restricted to people in receipt of benefits and there is no requirement that you must be employed or that you must be unemployed.

In contrast to previous schemes, one third of funds need to be ringfenced to support pensioner households.
