Cheshire Council supports vulnerable families
Written by Hitmix Local News on 15 February 2021
Cheshire East Council has distributed more food and energy vouchers to vulnerable children and families this half term.
With the help of schools, colleges, early years settings and other family support services, more than 11,000 vouchers have been distributed to date, funded from the council’s share of the government’s 170 million pounds Covid Winter Grant Scheme, which launched in December last year.
The fund, which ends next month, aims to support those most in need with the cost of food, energy, water bills and other essentials.
In addition to the vouchers, families in need are now also able to receive refurbished white goods such as cookers, fridges, washing machines and microwaves.
