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 next cost of living support scheme, providing £100 support to eligible households with energy and/or food costs, will open for online applications from 12pm Tuesday 11 June 2024. The scheme will operate on a first come, first served basis. Applications will close in September 2024 or once the funds have been allocated.

This page will be updated in early June with key information regarding how to apply online for this support and the details of the scheme eligibility criteria.

If you are in a crisis and need assistance now, refer to the other places to get support section below.
