East Riding Household Support Fund for Oil Customers

Humber and Wolds Rural Action are administering the Household Support Fund for Oil Customers this winter, with it being aimed at low-income households within the East Riding area.

We are looking to target eligible households who use oil for heating, and we thought that circulating to Parish Councils could help get the information out to residents who could benefit from this scheme.

Below you can find a link to the website which includes full details, eligibility criteria and the application form.

The Household Support Fund aims to help vulnerable households in the East Riding with the rising cost of heating oil. Grants will be awarded to eligible residents and is aimed at low income households.

Please note that this fund is only available to East Riding residents.

On application if eligible, households will receive an oil delivery or the LPG alternative and free membership to the Bulk Oil Buying Scheme for the first year (normally £20 per year).


If you have any queries please contact HWRA on 07918 147006 or email:
