Are there residents in Scarning in need of financial help this Winter?
Residents who need help with food, fuel or other household essentials can get help this Winter through the recently announced Household Support Fund.
The Government announced its Household Support Fund (HSF) on 30 September 2021, allocating £6.69 million to Norfolk County Council to be spent by the end of March 2022 to alleviate winter hardship while the economy recovers. The fund is to support residents with financial uncertainties, providing a bridge between the end of furlough, the reduction in Universal Credit, and unprecedented increases in the cost of household bills and fuel. There is a major focus on supporting families, with 50% of the fund to be allocated to households with children.
