Household Support Fund

The Household Support Fund is continuing for 12 months from 1st April 2023. You can find the guidance that has been provided to councils from government on how they should use this funding to support vulnerable households here.

Since the onset of the pandemic, GMPA has been supporting councils to consider how they can best support residents through additional hardship funding from government. You can read about some of this work here. This builds on GMPA’s work on local welfare provision.

Further updates from GMPA on the Household Support Fund will be provided in due course. We encourage people in need of support to contact their local council directly.

You may also find some useful links to support on Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s website Helping Hand here

Please note that councils operate other types of local welfare support, such as support with Council Tax. You can find links through to those other types of support here.
