Financial Help and Benefits
There are times when we all need financial support or advice about what benefits we may be entitled to receive.
Support with the Cost of Living Crisis
The current cost of living is something that is impacting not just families but children themselves. Many children are so aware of how the cost of things is impacting the wellbeing of their parents and this then in turn is impacting their own wellbeing. SMFR work to support families with any issues that affect them.
Here are some useful sources of support currently available:
The Household Support Fund
This is an initiative to help families and vulnerable individuals who struggle to pay for basic living costs, such as: food, energy, water bills and essential goods.
The Household Support Fund (HSF) grant has been extended again to support those most in need. It's available from 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023.
