What the Household Support Fund is.
The Household Support Fund is money from the government that we use to help low-income households with food and fuel poverty. The funding has been extended to the end of March 2023.
How the money will be allocated
Please do not contact us about the funding, we'll be in touch if you're eligible.
The fund will be divided as follows:
Free school meal vouchers
Free school meal vouchers will be provided for Free School Meal/Pupil Premium children during Christmas, February and Easter school holidays. They will be sent from the school by email, contact your school directly if you do not receive it.
Charities and care leavers
Money is also being allocated to care leavers, foster households, Feeding Bristol, Red Cross, Age UK and the Centre for Sustainable Energy.
These organisations will be in contact directly to assist those that are eligible for assistance.
If you need emergency financial support, you can contact our Local Crisis Prevention Fund. You can also see help with money and debt problems.
