As a council we are doing everything within our power to help struggling residents with the current cost of living crisis.

A special package of measures has been introduced by the Council recently, funded primarily by the 2.9% Council Tax revenue increase this year.

Some £300K of support will be available across a number of areas such as housing payments support to help residents on benefits, and a hardship fund to help those in debt.

Funds are being made available to Horsham Matters to help them expand their fuel crisis activities and to Citizen’s Advice to recruit extra staff to cope with increased demand.

Supporting new initiatives for young people is also apriority, with extra money for a mentoring scheme in partnership with West Sussex County Council
