The Household Support Fund is now available for those most in need in Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire County Council has received £7.4 million from the government’s Household Support Fund to help vulnerable households with the cost of living. If you live in Gloucester, you may be eligible for support through the central fund or from Gloucester City Council’s targeted schemes. This could include help with food, energy and water bills, and other essential costs.

The Household Support Fund is there to help low income households, including families, pensioners, unpaid carers, care leavers and disabled people. It provides immediate help for those who are struggling. This could include help with your energy, water, broadband and phone bills, as well as other essentials such as food, clothing and hygiene products. The fund can also assist with transport-related costs such as car repairs, buying a bicycle or paying for fuel.
