Financial relief is on the way for thousands of people in the UK with a £200 direct payment due to go into bank accounts within days, according to Birmingham Live. Many local councils will be sending out the cash in a bid to help with rising household costs.

Named the ‘Household Support Fund’, the payment has been created as a result of the current cost of living crisis. Councils are understood to be paying the amount from Friday, July 8, 2022. The website said that one local authority poised to drop the cash this week was Doncaster.

To apply for the £200 you’ll need to be claiming a council tax reduction, housing benefit or Universal Credit. However, some councils are giving the cash out automatically.

The government says: “The new Household Support Fund will be distributed by councils in England to directly help those who need it most. The grant will be distributed through small payments to support vulnerable households meet daily needs such as food, clothing, and utilities.”

The scheme was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak. The statement continued: “The fund has been extended to 30 September 2022 with an additional £500 million of funding which will be used by local authorities to support vulnerable households“.

The cost of living crisis continues to hit households as rising food costs, soaring energy bills, rising National Insurance contributions and council tax bills continue to take their toll on UK salaries. Check with your local council or welfare organisation to see if you qualify for help.
