Extending the Household Support Fund
This week the government announced an extension of the Household Support Fund – providing an additional £842 million to support the most vulnerable households.
- The Household Support Fund has already helped vulnerable families across England through challenging times, so it is right that we continue this support as we work to halve inflation and grow our economy.
- That is the government has announced an extension of the Household Support Fund until 31 March 2023, which will provide local authorities with an additional £842 million to establish schemes that support vulnerable families in their areas, such as food vouchers, energy saving packs, or items such as heated blankets.
- This funding will ensure that we continue to support vulnerable families with the cost of living.
