Reminder: Norfolk Household Support Fund

N.B. The Norfolk Household Support Fund Round 4 is now closed. 

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 but 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 should include signposting and provision of 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. Recipients should have been identified as particularly vulnerable to the cost-of-living crisis. In particular they should need 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 Norfolk Household Support Fund has been made possible by Norfolk County Council working with the Department of Work & Pensions.
