The Household Fund is to assist residents most in need, in the Preston area, to help with significant rising living costs. It is intended to help those who do not have enough resources to meet immediate short term needs and require assistance with essential items over the coming months.
It can help with:
Energy and Water
Essentials linked to energy and water
Wider essentials not linked to energy and water
Please note: the emphasis on this round of funding is for help with energy costs. White goods and furniture will only be awarded in exceptional circumstances. Carpets will not be considered under the new scheme.
It is not intended to cover debt advice or general financial hardship support which is not linked to food, warmth and/or hygiene.
The fund is not intended to cover housing costs as there are other benefits and support available to help with these for example Discretionary Housing Payments.
