Household Support Fund

Help for households and families from the Household Support Fund, funded by the Department for Work and Pensions

With the significant rise in the cost of utilities and food, households in Hampshire who are struggling to afford necessities such as food and fuel can get extra help from the connect4communities programme, funded by the Department for Work and Pensions' Household Support Fund.

The Household Support Fund has been further extended by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) until September 2024. Hampshire County Council has been allocated just over £7.1m which will be used to support vulnerable households at risk of food or fuel poverty or insecurity.

More details about the range of government help with the cost of living are available at the Cost of Living hub. To check your eligibility for cost of living payments, you can use this guide on the government's website.
