Household Support Fund

Funded by the Department for Work and Pensions on behalf of the UK government, the Household Support Fund scheme supports vulnerable Kent households in need of help with significantly rising living costs.

The Household Support Fund (food and energy support scheme) is now closed for new applications.

If you have already submitted an application, it will still be processed and we will email you about the outcome.

Other places to get support

If you have money worries or are looking for ways you can make your money go further, we can help you to find your way through to the advice and support available.

Via our cost of living support pages you can:

  • check if you are eligible for any benefits
  • get advice about how to reduce energy use and who to contact for help paying bills
  • use our help and support finder to find help available with food, Council Tax, clothing, childcare and much more.

You can also visit the government's cost of living hub for further information.
