Household Support Fund available for Mid Sussex residents

PR2024007 - 06/02/2024

Mid Sussex District Council is working with the Department of Work and Pensions to support residents in need across the district. The Household Support Fund will allocate funds to aid low-income households in coping with the rising cost of living.  


Running until March 31 this year, the initiative aims to provide additional support for families struggling with the increasing costs of food, white goods and other essentials. Eligible individuals and families will receive vouchers, ensuring that the assistance directly addresses crucial needs. 


Alison Bennett, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communities and Communications said: “The increased cost of living is having a huge impact on communities across our district. It’s a difficult time for everyone, but there is a huge amount of support available. 


“You could be eligible to receive household support to help pay for food, white goods and energy, so please do reach out so we can see how we can help you. The Household Support Fund is a helping hand for those navigating financial challenges, and we want to ensure that every eligible household in Mid Sussex is aware of the assistance available.” 


This funding is designed to benefit a diverse range of individuals and families, including, families with children of all ages, pensioners, unpaid carers, disabled individuals and more. 


This initiative aligns with the Council’s commitment to supporting vulnerable members of the community during challenging times. The aim is to relieve the financial strain on households, promoting stability and well-being.
