The Household Support Fund is funding provided by the Government to local authorities which they can use to support vulnerable households. The scheme has been extended until the end of September 2022.

Each local authority will be have different ways of distributing the money and you would need to contact your own local authority directly to see if you are eligible for any of the funding available.
