Organisations under consideration for Household Support Fund allocation


The organisations below are being considered for allocation of funding out of the HSF under the categories of:

·         Other organisations supporting groups with protected characteristics

The scheme guidance was only distributed to Local Authorities on 6 October, so the following is a preliminary and incomplete list, whilst we develop the detail of the allocations to community organisations.

Amounts of funding have not yet been finalised but will be flexible throughout the duration of the fund’s lifetime.  The council will be able to reduce or increase the individual budgets in order to focus support in areas where there is the most need.

Some of these organisations will work as part of wider partnerships, not administering funds directly, but referring into schemes in order to reduce administrative burden.

Organisations identified so far are as follows (incomplete draft list – more organisations to be added):

Money Advice Plus

Financial and other vulnerability


Women experiencing domestic violence


Young people


Children and young people with disablities


Families with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities

The £0.090m Winter Grants scheme is also currently underway, whereby organisations are able to bid for up to £5,000 funds for providing support around food, fuel and essential items. Bids are now closed and applications are being assessed.
