Help for residents facing financial hardship this winter

We are inviting residents with low incomes to apply for a grant to help ease the financial pressure they may face this winter. The Tandridge Household Support Fund will help residents who are in financial difficulties and struggling to meet the cost of essential items including:

  • Food.
  • Energy and water bills.
  • Repair or purchase of essential household appliances.
  • Servicing and repair of heating systems.
  • School uniform or other essential clothing.
  • Broadband and phone bills.
  • Transport related costs.

Who can apply?

We accept applications from, or on behalf of, people who are in financial difficulties. The person receiving the funds must:

  • Be over the age of 16.
  • Live in the Tandridge district.
  • Be struggling to meet immediate and essential needs for themselves or their dependents.

At least 50% of funding is ring-fenced to support households with children.

How do I apply?

You can apply online at www.tandridge.gov.uk/supportfund. If you don’t have access to the internet, please call 01883 722000.

How will payments be made?

Once a decision has been made, the recipient will be notified in writing. Payments will be either by voucher, a direct payment to a supplier or by BACS transfer to a bank account. Vouchers will be processed within three working days and other payments within 10 working days.

Application deadline

The fund is available until 31 March 2022. We strongly encourage people to apply immediately as funding is limited and we may have allocated all the funds before the closing date.
