2/12/2021 - Cllr Sir Steve Houghton CBE, Leader of Barnsley Council, on the Household Support Grant

Cllr Sir Steve Houghton CBE, Leader of Barnsley Council, said: “We’re really pleased to be supporting people across the borough with the Household Support Grant. It’s really important that everyone in Barnsley can pay their bills, buy food, and meet essential living costs, which is why as a council we’re providing £1 million of funding, alongside funding from the Department of Work and Pensions, to help support households over the winter months. If you receive council tax support, I really urge you to apply for this grant. We know that the last 18 months have been really difficult for a lot of people, and we’re putting support in place to help you if you need it.”
