The Household Support Fund is a new fund that aims to help those individuals struggling to pay for food, energy or other essential items this winter.
Cambridgeshire County Council has been allocated £3.58 million and Peterborough City Council has been allocated £1,824,656 as part of the Government’s Household Support Fund to help people who need financial support.
The wider scheme will provide two primary routes for households to get the support they need; a direct application process and support facilitated via a trusted partner network.
Practical support that can be provided through the fund includes:
- A supermarket voucher to support with food for both families and individuals.
- Energy fuel and Water, either by paying bills on-demand, via direct debit, or a pre-payment meter.
- Other essential supplies
