Extra help is available this winter for households in Brighton & Hove struggling to pay for food, fuel and other essential costs.

The funding is part of the government’s Household Support Fund. The extra support is available until 31 March 2022.

The funding does not provide cash. We'll offer vouchers or find another way to help you access essential goods and services.
