Households facing financial hardship across Lincolnshire can access support with essentials this winter!
A new community-based Household Support Fund is available to people across the county, who find themselves in the most need.
District councils across Lincolnshire have been allocated a share of government funding to support vulnerable households over the winter months. It will help to meet the monthly costs such as energy bills, food, clothing and housing costs in exceptional circumstances.
The Household Support Fund can be accessed by professional referral only. This is to ensure the wide support needs of households are met. They will identify people in need of support, make the necessary checks and then complete a referral form, which will be submitted to the resident's district council.
Residents can ask for an application to be made on their behalf from referral partners which include:
If you are struggling, please contact one of our referral partners who will help you apply for this fund.
North Kesteven District Council will aim to process the application within five working days. Your voucher will be issued to you using your preferred contact method.
