Household Support Fund 


You may be eligible for help with your food and the cost of utilities through the Household Support Fund Extension. Funded by UK Government, the scheme is for those most in need of support to help with the significant rise in the cost of living.

In our area, Swale Borough Council will be working with local organisations to deliver support with food and fuel provision through a network of established agencies within the Borough.
