Household Support Fund

Our Winter 2021/22 scheme has now closed, but the Government announced extra money for the Household Support Fund on 23 March 2022 and we await further details. 

2021/22 Household Support Fund

We spent our full allocation of £382,000 by supporting 4,294 financially vulnerable households in a variety of ways. 

£100 supermarket vouchers

  • We offered £100 supermarket vouchers to households with children receiving Council Tax Reduction
  • We provided £100 supermarket vouchers to households referred to the scheme by other Council departments or our partners (Raven Housing and Citizen Advice Reigate & Banstead) 

Voluntary sector partner suport

We provided grants to local voluntary and community organisations and Food Clubs to deliver targeted help, such as hot meals and essential items to people struggling financially.

Housing support

Our Housing Team supported households struggling to cover housing costs where no other funding or support was available.
