Household Support Fund
Households who are struggling with the cost of household essentials this winter can get help with food and household costs from the Government’s Household Support Fund.
This is funding distributed to county councils in England to help those most in need this winter, and a share of the funding is allocated provide help to low income households in Redditch.
To be eligible you must be resident here, over 18, and without sufficient resources to meet your immediate short-term needs.
We are working with a number of local agencies to allocate this funding which is available until 31 March 2022 for immediate needs and utility costs as follows:
Help with immediate needs such as food and other wider essentials
If you are a member of a household that is struggling and may benefit from a fund for food and essentials then please contact Redditch Citizens Advice Service.
Help with energy, heating and water costs
If you are a member of a household that is struggling with utility costs then please see this Act On Energy scheme.
