Household Support Fund Awareness Week

Earlier this year, the Government has made an extra £842 million available to help the most vulnerable across England. This week, we’re all trying to encourage people who are eligible to get the funds to apply.

The funding is an extension of the Household Support Fund and has been allocated by the Department for Work and Pensions to councils in England, who will then use it to support those in need in their local area.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council has been distributing the funds in various ways and will continue to do so until 31 March 2024.

There are discretionary payments of £300 per application available to low-income, energy paying households who do not receive Council Tax Reduction and do not benefit from Government’s Cost of Living support payments.

You may be eligible for this payment if:

  • you live in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees
  • your household does not get Council Tax Reduction
  • no members of the household have received a Government Cost of Living Support payment any time this year
  • you are liable to pay the household energy bills or prepayment meters
  • your total net weekly household income does not exceed £400 for a single person, £500 for a couple, or £600 for a family

Find out more and start an application by visiting the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council website
