Household Support Fund
The third Household Support Fund scheme is now closed.
The government has confirmed funding for a further scheme to run until the end of March 2024. The fourth Household Support Fund scheme will continue to provide extra help to those households who need it most as prices of so many essentials remain high.
Devon County Council will once again be running the Fund across the whole of Devon and ensuring it supports as many people as possible. More details can be found on their website as schemes are developed.
We will again receive part of the funding to allow us to continue supporting local residents throughout this year and through next winter. We want to make sure the limited funding can do as much good as possible, so we are currently developing plans for how this latest scheme will work. As more information is available we will update this webpage. As this scheme runs until next spring, the first payments are likely to made in the summer (July / August) with further support available in the winter months.
