Household Support Fund
The government has introduced a Household Support Fund (HSF) for local authorities to help support some groups during the winter with essential living costs such as food, energy or water bills.
Liverpool City Council has identified several groups that it intends to support with this fund. If you meet the following criteria as of 1st December 2021, you will receive a letter from the council inviting you to apply for support.
- a single person aged under 25 or
- a single person aged between 25 to 35
- and in receipt of Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Support.
The letter you receive will include your unique identifier, which you will need when you submit your application. We will use this identifier to validate your application.
Letters will be sent out over the coming weeks starting 24th December 2021.
If you have not received a letter inviting you to apply for an award and you are experiencing hardship, other support is available.
