Household Support Fund

Please note that this phase of the Household Support Fund ended on 30 September 2022. An extension to the scheme has recently been announced by the Government and we will release more information soon.

In the March 2022 Spring Statement, the Government announced that the Household Support Fund would be extended to 30 September 2022. Test Valley Borough Council has received funding to distribute food vouchers to pensioners and Council Tax Support claimants.

Supermarket vouchers will be issued as follows:

  • £65 voucher for each pensioner who is in receipt of Pension Credit and Council Tax Support
  • £30 voucher for each household which is in receipt of Council Tax Support

There is no need to apply. If you are eligible, the Council will automatically send you a voucher by 30 September 2022.
