What’s the ‘Household Support Fund’?
The Government has made funding available to local councils so they can offer direct support to those most in need in their area. It’s called the Household Support Fund.
There are conditions on how the money can be allocated. It must be used to help people who are struggling to pay for food, energy, water bills and other related essentials, and specifically those households that may not be eligible for other support that is already available from the Government
With winter approaching, Devon County Council is working with its Team Devon partners (District and City councils) and other community organisations to provide our most vulnerable residents with rapid short-term financial support through a number of different schemes to help them over the coming months.
