The Bromley Household Support Fund, funded by the Department of Work and Pensions, provides additional support to those most in need.

Applications for support are being welcomed whilst funds last, for Bromley residents who meet the specified eligibility criteria and have been referred with the agreement of a partner organisation.

A second phase will be launched in October, where residents can apply directly, the scheme will operate until 31 March 2024 or whilst funds last.

What support is available?

Applicants that meet the eligibility criteria will receive a £200 payment card via email.  If you do not have an email address, you will receive a Sainsbury’s supermarket voucher to the value of £200 by post.

Making an application

We must make sure that all applications are made legitimately.  If you falsely declare your circumstances, provide a false statement, or provide false evidence in support of your application, you may have committed an offence under the Fraud Act 2006.  We have a zero-tolerance approach to fraud and financial irregularity.  We are making anti-fraud checks and all suspicions of fraud will be investigated.

Can I get support with making my application?

Yes, if you are unable to apply online yourself, you can ask a family member, friend or the council’s referring partner organisation to assist you.  You can contact with the council as well if needed. 

How will I know what the council’s decision is?

We will email a notice of our decision to you if you have an email address.  Alternatively you will receive notification by post.  This will explain the decision and how the award will be made if you have been successful.
