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 31 March 2023 or until the budget is spent.

The fund can be used for:

  • food and home essentials
  • 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 and is administered to a fixed budget. The terms of the scheme could change during the year.

What we can award and how.

Our Household Support Fund scheme does not require banking details to administer support. We will never request this information over the telephone.
