Household support fund

Kent county council is currently working with citizens advice North and West Kent to help support residents on low incomes who are taking positive steps to address their debts. Residents could be eligible for additional support towards household and energy bill and receive up to £500 (subject to eligibility criteria) 

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for this scheme, residents must at a minimum meet the following qualifying criteria:

  • Be a Kent resident, permanently living within one of the 12 local authorities covered by Kent County Council (this excludes Medway, Bromley, and Bexley)
