Household Support Fund
The government has recently announced that the Household Support Fund grant will be made available to Local Authorities to support families this winter period.
Brent Council will be using this funding to provide supermarket vouchers for the Christmas period. Each eligible family will be issued with a £50 Edenred voucher per eligible child.
This amount includes £30 to contribute to the cost of food over the Christmas break, equating to £15 per week, and an additional payment of £20 to contribute to the cost of other household essentials that can be purchased from supermarkets, which equates to £10 per week.
