Worried about how you’ll manage the increasing living costs? We may be able to help.

The government have now extended the Household Support Fund (HSF) until September 2022 to help those that are finding the increasing energy, household and food bills a struggle.

We’re pleased to announce that we have been asked to help distribute £25,000 from this fund to allocate specifically to Disabled people and those with long term health conditions in Surrey.

What funding is available?

One grant per household (Not per person) may be awarded to help with either food or energy costs. Please note grants will be awarded on a first come first served basis, once the funds have been allocated we’ll be unable to offer any further grants. So please make sure you apply as soon as possible.

We’ll be able to issue one grant for either:

Supermarket vouchers: Tesco/Sainsburys/Aldi (orange gift card)/ Iceland vouchers are available up to a maximum of £200  

Or

Water, gas or electricity bills: A payment directly to your energy or water supplier. (Up to a maximum value of £200). We will need a copy of your latest bill in order to do this.

Alternatively, we can make payments up to a maximum of £200 to help with household essentials into Supported Managed Accounts.

Who can apply?

We welcome applications from:

  • Surrey residents
  • Full Coalition members (over 18)
  • People that have an immediate need for this help

We will not be able to support:

  • Applications that do not meet the criteria
  • Applications where there is no immediate need
  • Mortgage payments or repayment of personal debts
  • Council Tax payments

    Unfortunately I am unable to process this application as the system keeps asking me for food vouchers when I don’t want such. My application is for energy costs.
