Household support fund

Introduction

North Tyneside Council will receive another Household Support Grant for 6 months to be spent from the April 2024 onwards.

We are waiting of guidance from the Department for Work and Pensions around how the grant can be spent.

Once this guidance is received, a decision will be made around the priorities of spend for this grant, and how it can be best used to support those most in need across the borough.

This page will be updated once a decision on spend for this grant has been made.
