Up to £240 to help with winter costs
Wokingham Borough Council has launched a new round of its Household Support Fund alongside its Hardship Alliance partners.
Payments have been increased for the winter months, which are often more expensive because of the need to stay warm at home.
If you’re struggling to pay for things like food, energy, bills or other essentials, you can get help. The options are:
- Parents of children who receive means-tested free school meals can get £20 per week for each eligible child during the school holidays
- Households with pensioners, carers, a disabled person and/or households with four or more people can get a one-off £250 payment
- A one-off £120 payment is available for any other households which are struggling to pay for essentials.
If you’ve applied and received a grant from Age UK Berkshire or Citizens Advice Wokingham between April and September 2023, you can now apply again. New applications are welcome.
