Household Support

Salford Council Household Support Fund


Salford City Council are excited to announce the launch of the new Household Support Fund funded by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Vulnerable households in Salford will be able to access the new Household Support Fund to help them with essentials over the winter months as the country continues its recovery from the pandemic.

The new Household Support Fund is intended to support households and families in Salford and will be distributed by Salford City Council's Salford Assist team.


The support will mostly be awarded by way of a grant payment to those eligible to assist with things like:

  • purchasing food
  • financial support for energy, water and utility bills
  • help to keep homes warm over the winter months
  • other essential items and support


Salford City Council are committed to ensuring vulnerable residents are supported in the best way possible and the new Household Support Fund will mirror the support Salford City Council offer via their Discretionary Support Scheme - Salford Assist, in the way that all reasonable requests for support will be considered. This could be for:

  • household items
  • white goods, carpets
  • thermal curtains to keep homes warm


Salford Assist will also help with referrals to other agencies to ensure you are getting the help you need.


Salford residents do not need to be in receipt of benefits to apply for the Household Support Fund, it is expected however that applicants are prepared to provide evidence that they do not have the funds themselves to purchase the items requested.
