Essex Household Support Fund

As part of the government’s Household Support Fund, Essex County Council has received funding to provide extra support with food, fuel and other household costs this winter.

The fund has been distributed to local organisations, who know their areas best and can directly help those in need.

You do not have to be claiming benefits to access support. Whatever your circumstances, if you are struggling this winter, you can get help with your essential costs.

Free school Meal vouchers will be issued during the holiday period and the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service will be issuing fuel, food and essential items vouchers to those families registered with them and identified as the most vulnerable.  The scheme is also supporting the provision of Care Leaver food hampers vouchers for the winter period.
