The Household Support Fund scheme has opened again for people finding it hard to cope with the rising cost of food and energy bills.
South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) has reopened the scheme to help households meet the costs of life’s essentials.
The fund is initially open for applications to help eligible households that have not received any support from the fund previously. However, from 13th February, if funds remain, it will be opened up wider to households that have received some funding in the past but not since May last year.
Residents can apply for support by filling in an online form on the council’s website or by calling the Community Hub team during office hours on 01235 422600. The fund closes on 31st March, or sooner if it is fully allocated.
Residents can find out more about the Household Support Fund and other cost of living support available on the SODC website.
