£3.2 million set to support Notts families with children struggling with rising bills

Thousands of Nottinghamshire households with children struggling to make ends meet are set to get extra support this summer and winter via the latest round of the Household Support Fund (HSF).

The fourth round of HSF is worth £11.2 million in total to cover a full year (March 2023 to March 2024) and will once again be administered by Nottinghamshire County Council in partnership with borough and district councils.

One-off summer and winter support payments, both worth around £100 per household, will continue to support families with children entitled to free school meals as well as other households and individuals struggling with rising costs. 

The £3.2 million will be shared among around 19,000 households with children in receipt of free school meals, or with children five or under with an equivalent eligibility.

The first set of payments are expected later this summer.

Families in receipt of free school meals will once again be contacted directly by the county council with details of how to apply for a seasonal payment.
