The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has given local councils funding to support people who are struggling this winter. Burnley Council is using this fund to help low income families with children. Eligible households could receive a fuel voucher or a food voucher to offset your fuel bill.

Please note your application may take up to 10 working days to process – please do not contact us during this period as it will take time away from processing applications and may result in any offer of support being delayed for longer than 10 working days. Thank you.
