District Council

Household Support Fund

Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire district councils have opened a voucher scheme to support households who can’t afford to pay for life’s essentials.

The scheme is part of the Government’s Household Support Fund (HSF) which was extended by the chancellor in the recent budget. A portion of funds allocated to Oxfordshire County Council have been allocated to Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire district councils as part of a wider support package across the county, which includes help for children eligible for free school meals through the holidays.

Funding is limited and the scheme is open initially to people who have not had support from it before. However, the councils will open it to second applications if funds remain.

Details of the scheme and the application process are available on the Vale’s website here.

I’ve also attached the map showing the route of Sunday’s Benefice Pilgrimage from Ashbury to Compton. It should take approximately an hour to walk between the churches, but do note that there are several stiles to climb along the way. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
