Household Support Fund

A maximum of two payments can be made worth £64 per household plus an extra £20 will be provided for each partner / spouse and any dependent children.

All payments must be made before the fund closes at the end of March 2022.

Payments are in addition to any support received from the existing Derbyshire Discretionary Fund, which allows eligible residents to receive up to three Emergency Cash Payments (ECP) over 12 months.

This means that an eligible household who has already received the maximum of three payments from the ECP scheme and is facing hardship this winter, can apply to the Household Support Fund for additional financial support.


How to apply

You can apply to receive support from the Household Support Fund by telephone. Please tel: 01629 533399.

When an application is made we will take some personal information during the call and then an assessor will phone back to discuss the application in more detail.

The assessor will need to know:

  • how a person or family is in crisis and what will happen if help is not quickly made available
  • what money and savings might be available or have been applied for


Please use link below.


Other things to bear in mind

We can only make a payment to someone who is over 16, and who lives in Derbyshire.

We have a limited amount of money and all applications will be assessed on the basis of need, urgency and risk.

We'll seek to share information with applicants about other forms of help and support that are available, which could improve their situation further.
