Household Support Fund Winter Support

Norfolk County Council is offering extra support to households this winter.

Earlier this year, Norfolk County Council announced it would receive further funding from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to run the Household Support Fund until 31 March 2024.

The council is receiving £13.4m from central government and adding an additional £400,000 to make the total programme of support worth £13.8m. It is working closely with district, borough, and city councils, VCSE and public sector partners to identify and implement a range of support measures to meet the needs of vulnerable households.

Since the fund began (October 2021) the impact on Norfolk communities of the fund so far has been significant:

  • We have supported over 130,000 households throughout the life of the fund.

  • We continue to provide food vouchers for over 30,000 eligible school children.

  • We have provided over 17,000 awards through our application-based Client Hardship Service (formally the Norfolk Assistance Scheme) ranging from food support through to providing white goods and winter essentials.

  • We have made over 546,000 awards in total through use of the fund across all rounds to date.

  • Support has also been provided through our libraries (grab and go bags), the Nourishing Norfolk food hubs (store credit), our district council partners with a range of both proactive and reactive support and by working with our local VCSE community to directly support the most vulnerable Norfolk families.

The DWP’s upcoming Household Support Fund Awareness Week (16--22 October) also coincides with the launch date for our Norfolk libraries winter campaign.

Norfolk County Council is holding a Help for Households drop-in event at Great Yarmouth Library on Wednesday 18 October from 10.30 to 3.00pm.

At the library event, people will be able to get information about a range of support such as emergency funding for utility bills, food banks, how to apply for free school meals and cost of living vouchers, advice about managing money,  and local support from Great Yarmouth Borough Council.  There will be free hot drinks for everyone attending and for those with additional needs, free winter support items will be available.

As part of the Household Support Fund, all 47 of Norfolk’s libraries will be offering free winter support items until the end of March 2024 (while stocks last).

Find out more about help form the Household Support fund here.

How members can get involved

  • Signpost residents in need to support available at 


  • If someone needs emergency help with food or fuel, then direct them to the Client Hardship Services team 


    or tell them to call 0344 800 8020.

  • Encourage local residents to come along to the Great Yarmouth library event on 18th October if they need support.

Whilst writing, and against this backdrop, may I draw your attention to;

Councillors are to examine the county council’s initial proposals to bridge a £46 million budget gap.

A report to Norfolk County Council’s scrutiny committee says the authority faces a “significant challenge” to develop a budget for 2024/2025, ahead of further announcements on funding from the Government, later this year.

The current proposals include a Council Tax increase of 4.99 per cent, including the adult social care precept of two per cent.

Public consultation on the budget will be undertaken over the autumn, once scrutiny has considered the report and made any recommendations.

The scrutiny committee meets at 10am on Wednesday 18 October. Further details and a link to the report available here.
