Councillor Caroline Makinson, Cabinet Spokesperson for Public Health and Communities, said: “As the cost of living crisis continues to impact on our communities, we’re really pleased to see the government’s Household Support Fund continuing. As with previous rounds of this funding, we will make sure it gets to those households in our communities who need it most to support them with the rising cost of living.
“We’re currently working through the details of this latest round of funding, and once our plans are finalised, we will publish details on the support that will be available. Please keep an eye on our channels for more information soon.
“We’re committed to supporting our communities with the rising cost of living, including offering warm, welcoming spaces for anyone who’s feeling the cold and making sure government funding gets to you. Our More Money in Your Pocket webpage also has lots of information on the support available locally to help you – visit barnsley.gov.uk/MMIYP.”
