Household Support Fund

The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has provided local government with a further £421m of Household Support funding, nationally, for the period April - September 2022. 

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's allocation of funding for this period is £587,905.21. As with other funding provided, the DWP have issued guidance with regard to how they expect this funding to be used to assist local residents, but there is some discretion for authorities who must create their own schemes, taking the Government guidance into account.
