Household Support Fund and Derbyshire Winter Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)
Derbyshire County Council has been awarded funds from the DWP to help support families and households who are facing financial hardship to pay for food, energy and essential living costs over the winter. The fund is known as the Household Support Fund (HSF).
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
