Household Support Fund - vouchers for children in receipt of free school meals for the Spring half term holiday

A further allocation of Household Support Fund (HSF) was allocated in the Government’s Budget announced on the 6 March 2024. This covers six months from April to September 2024.


A report will be presented to Cabinet in June to approve allocation of HSF, however, to follow the practice providing vouchers to children in receipt of free school meals for the spring half term holiday, a delegated decision will be required in advance of that. This is because the spring half term holiday falls before the meeting of Cabinet in June.
