Information on support available to families
If your family is in particular need, please do not hesitate to talk to a member of Harriers’ staff in confidence. We can help you access support.
Practical help and support is available for people struggling to feed their families or heat their homes this winter as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Oxfordshire County Council, in partnership with the county’s district councils and Citizens Advice services, is offering support to vulnerable residents through a Winter Support Grant to fund the cost of food, electricity, heating and other essential items.
What help is available
Households can obtain support through supermarket vouchers, to cover costs for pre-payment meters, or to make sure that a heating or water bill is paid. Additional advice, guidance and signposting to other support is also available. Support is available up to the end of 31 March, 2021, dependent on the demand on funding.
If a resident has received a food voucher from a previous scheme, they may also be eligible to have one from the Winter Support Grant.
