    The Government allocated £842 million to local authorities in England to extend the Household Support Fund for a year from 01 April 2023 until 31 March 2023, in order to further support households with the cost of living. 

    The Household Support Fund is there to help households who are struggling with the cost of essentials including families, pensioners, unpaid carers, care leavers, and disabled people. 

    Between 16 and 22 October 2023, DWP is holding a Household Support Fund Awareness Week, to promote the good work that local authorities have done in delivering the scheme so far, and to encourage people to visit their council’s website or contact their local council office for more information on support available in their area.

    You can help to promote the awareness week across your channels by using the assets available in the Household Support Fund awareness week toolkit - which contains social media assets, a downloadable poster, suggested newsletter copy, easy read guidance, and more.

    The scheme is one of many to support households with the cost of living, including Cost of Living Payments, Social Tariffs, and help with childcare costs.

    Visit the Help for Households website to find out about the support available.
