Cost of living support

Financial support including the household support fund, food support, help with your bills, childcare costs and transport costs.

The current Household Support fund awarded to us has now been allocated, the online application form has closed.
Central Government has announced that further funding will be available. We are awaiting the final details on how that will be distributed.
If you are in crisis please contact the Ways to Welfare Service on 03003 733 300.

With the cost of living on the rise, there will be people who are struggling, whether that's emotionally, financially or just because they need practical help to get in touch and seek support.

You might feel worried or find yourself in a position you have never experienced before, but please don't wait for problems to get worse, there are many local organisations that can help.
