The Household Support Fund was announced by the Government in late autumn 2021 to support vulnerable households in need during this winter.
The scheme ran from October 2021 to March 2022 and closed on 31 March 2022. All funds to support Waverley residents have been allocated.
In its Spring Statement 2022 on 22 March, the Government announced it will be providing an additional £500m for the Household Support Fund from April 2022 to help the most vulnerable households with the cost of essentials such as food, clothing and utilities. Councils are currently awaiting further information and if there is funding available to continue the scheme in Waverley, details will be provided here.
