THERE’S still time for Barnsley residents to apply for a winter support grant.

The household support grant is available for eligible households to buy food, pay essential bills, and meet other essential living or housing costs over the winter months.

Households that receive council tax support will be eligible to apply for the grant.

Vouchers will be issues to help with food and essentials, and financial support will be provided to help with fuel and bills.

You can apply for grocery vouchers to use in Aldi, Asda, Morrisons or Tesco, and vouchers for Argos, Currys or Halfords for essential household items.

Residents experiencing immediate food poverty should contact the Barnsley Foodbank Partnership.

The deadline to apply is March 31 and more information can be found on the Barnsley Council website.
