Household Support Fund

Households who are struggling with the cost of household essentials can get help with food and household costs from HM Government's Household Support Fund. To be eligible you must be resident here, over 18, and without sufficient resources to meet your immediate short-term needs.

Here are the local agencies to contact for this support.

Help with immediate needs, such as food and other wider essentials

Important Update
Please check Citizens Advice for the availability of funds for your household type here.
Due to an exceptional high demand, there will be an approximate 4 week waiting time for application requests.

If you are a member of a household that is struggling and may benefit from a fund for food and essentials then please apply to the Household Support Fund at Citizens Advice Bromsgrove and Redditch.

Help with energy, heating and water costs

If you are a member of a household that is struggling with utility costs then please apply to the Household Support Fund at Act On Energy.
