Chancellor’s Spring statement sees continued funding for households needing urgent support.

Announcement by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, confirms £500m Household Support Funding for Local Authorities to help vulnerable families.


The funding, which begins this April, will help ease financial pressures on residents – providing short term help with food, fuel bills and other urgent essentials as families continue to struggle with the energy prices and other costs of living.

Over the past winter period, Charis has been proud to work with dozens of local authorities to get critical food, fuel and cash vouchers to those needing urgent support. Since November, we have delivered circa 15,000 vouchers directly to individuals on behalf of public bodies throughout the UK.

Via our unique online platform, we have facilitate the staff of councils, unitary authorities, districts and boroughs to quickly access and deliver help to local people with the click of a button.

With the funding announced today, we hope that we can continue collaboration with our existing Local Authority partners, and broaden the range of organisations we support as they develop their strategies for delivering household essentials effectively and efficiently.
