Household Support Fund is Returning

The Norfolk Household Support Fund (funded through the Norfolk County Council Cost of Living Support Scheme) is returning to help with the rising costs of household utility bills. This round of funding can support any households who are particularly vulnerable to increasing energy costs. This funding is not means tested. However, the organisation will need to have an understanding of the applicant’s circumstances before applying.

The Household Support Fund has been created to provide a straightforward route for frontline Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations to deliver vital and immediate financial support with utility bills.

This funding is to complement the existing support provided through your services. This help should include signposting and providing information to those who are particularly vulnerable to the increasing cost of living.

Norfolk VCSE organisations can apply for grants with a maximum value of £50 per household. These households should have been identified as particularly vulnerable to the cost-of-living crisis. The grants are there to help with the cost of household energy bills and other regular utility bills. Household utility bills are defined as regular outgoing payments made to keep a household running.

The fund will be open for applications in the next few weeks, please sign up to our funding and support newsletter to keep up to date with all of the Norfolk Community Foundation’s funding opportunities: Sign up here.

This funding has been made possible by Norfolk County Council working with the Department of Work & Pensions.
