The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has provided local government with the Household Support Fund for the period April 2023 to March 2024.
The objective of the Fund is to provide support to vulnerable households to help with significantly rising living costs. Support is delivered through two different schemes: a £145 payment made directly to residents and vouchers which are provided during the school holidays to children who would usually receive free school meals.
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is currently working with a selection of delivery partners to allocate the Household Support Fund to residents.
Please visit the Household Support Fund webpage on RBWM Together for information about eligibility and applying for the £145 payment.
