Hardship fund to support vulnerable households
Additional financial support for the District’s most vulnerable residents is being made available by Warwick District Council to assist them with increasing energy and living costs.
£228,900 has been given to the Council by the Government to administer a discretionary energy rebate scheme, with Warwick District Council providing a further £200,000 Hardship Fund to ensure that residents in the District who are already on a low income and feeling the effects of recent price increases can receive financial help.
The Council will be using existing Council Tax information to administer the scheme, with those that are eligible qualifying for a hardship payment of up to £200.
