Cost of living support

Increases in the cost of living are hitting the finances of residents across Lichfield District.

We are responding to increases in the cost of living by offering a range of support to residents.

This includes the offering of a warm space at District Council House in Frog Lane for residents worried about the cost of heating their homes, a range of benefits support for those in need and advice and support through Lichfield Foodbank.

Warm spaces across Lichfield District

We have put together a directory of organisations offering warm spaces across the district.

You can also view these warm spaces on a map to find the closest to you.

If your organisation can help provide a warm space, please submit your warm space to our directory.

Guidance and aid

We also have a directory of organisations and charities providing guidance and aid on a range of issues including personal finance, energy efficiency and mental health.

If your organisation can help provide guidance or aid, please submit your details to our directory.

Energy rebate payments

Energy rebate payments are being made to households and eligible residents are being supported with discretionary housing payments to prevent homelessness.

Local council tax support scheme

A more generous local council tax support scheme based on an applicant’s income is being developed for launch in April 2023. Payment plans are being tailored to support residents struggling to make council tax payments and historic council tax arrears are being reviewed to provide appropriate debt relief for those in greatest need.

Enquries at Lichfield Foodbank

A member of our customer services team is attending Lichfield Foodbank to assist with council tax, council tax support and housing benefit enquiries.
