Cost of Living Support

Folkestone and Hythe residents worried about meeting the rising costs of living may be able to get support to help with everyday costs.

Depending on their circumstances residents could be eligible for schemes from Folkestone & Hythe District Council, Kent County Council or central government. There is also support available from local and national organisations and charities.

Details of the various options – including local support – have been collated at and leaflets with this information have been distributed to community spaces.

Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr Jenny Hollingsbee said:

“We’re lucky to have some wonderful local organisations in our district. I would urge residents who would benefit from additional help to visit our website and find out what support is available.”
