The Council is currently offering a one-off payment to households to
primarily assist with food and fuel bills over the winter period.

Residents are invited to apply to the Council for the one-off payment as part of the
Government’s Household Support Fund scheme.

The Council are offering three levels of
support, depending on the applicant’s circumstances.
£80 – provided for households with children
£60 – provided for single people or families without children
£50 – provided for over 70s
The expectation is that the funding should primarily be used to support households in
need with food, energy and water costs.
The scheme will run until 31 March 2022, or whenever all the funding is allocated so
applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible
