Families can get £100 in free cash as cost of living crisis subsides

HARD-UP families can get £100 in free cash to help pay for food and bills as the cost of living continues to rise.

This payment is part of the Household Assistance Fund, which allows councils to give cash to residents who are struggling with essential expenses.

For example, people living in Elmbridge, Surrey, can apply for a one-time £100 payment through the fund.

The deadline to apply is 8 a.m. January 31, with just over two weeks left for you send your request.

You will need your benefits reference number and bank account details.

Once your application has been accepted, you will receive £100 into your account within two weeks.

Much of the funding will be allocated to households with children and those who are claiming housing allowance or council tax assistance by 22 November 2021.

Although this particular scheme is only available to residents of Elmbridge Council, there may be a similar scheme where you live.

But how much you can get and who’s eligible will vary across the country.

In Runnymede, for example, households can pay up to £800 for essential expenses such as food, heating, white goods and repairs.

In Spelthorne you can get a one-time cash payments up to £80 and in Rutland you can get £100 for essentials.

Meanwhile, Barnsley families can sign up supermarket vouchers worth up to £200.

You can search for your local council using search engine on gov.uk – just enter your postcode.

You can then see the help you can get from the Household Assistance Fund, who is eligible and how to apply.

You should do this sooner rather than later, as the amount of cash to play is limited.

Funding is available until the end of March but some councils have closed applications earlier or could run out of cash if there is a lot of need.
