About the Household Support Fund

The Household Support Fund provides support to vulnerable Medway households.

Funded by the UK government, the scheme is for those most in need of support to help with significantly rising living costs.

It closes on 30 September 2022 or until the budget is spent.

The fund can be used for:

  • food and home essentials
  • school uniforms
  • energy
  • water
  • essentials linked to energy and water
  • housing costs in exceptional circumstances, but not mortgages.

The fund is available for those who are not considered eligible for public funds.

It’s administered to a fixed budget. The terms of the scheme could change during the year.
