Household support fund
The Government provided the Household Support Fund to local authorities for the period 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024.
Having consulted with local organisations about how best to help people in Cheshire West and Chester, we have chosen to spend the money in the following ways:
- food vouchers for families with children who get free school meals
- payments to low income households who haven't received the cost of living payment from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
- making financial support available to people via local charitable organisations
- helping low income households with energy and food costs.
