Household Support Fund

An extension to the Household Support Fund (HSF) was announced by the UK government in the Budget on 6 March 2024. This fund will cover the period from April 2024 to September 2024. On 29 April 2024 the Children and Families Committee agreed a new package of HSF support in Cheshire East.

The Household Support Fund is to provide crisis support to financially vulnerable households most in need.

A range of support is available to help financially vulnerable adults, children and their families living in Cheshire East:

  • Food and Energy support
  • Financial support for wider essentials
  • Financial support for exceptional costs

In addition to this the Household Support Fund will also work with select local third sector organisations to provide financial support to enhance their offer.
