The help comes via the Household Support Fund (HSF) which is worth £842million.

The pot of money has come from Government which has shared it between councils in England.

They then decide how to distribute their share – some are offering out vouchers while others are making direct cash bank transfers.

If you live in Manchester‘s Bury, between Bolton and Rochdale, you could get between £100 and £300 in the hand for free.

The money will be paid either via bank transfer or as vouchers and can be used to cover fuel, bill and grocery costs.

Eligibility and how much you get will be based on your income and spending.

You don’t need to be on benefits in order to qualify.

The Bury Council asks locals to fill in a form and provide evidence that they qualify.

The scheme is open until March 2024 and residents can apply via the council website.

It breaks down how people can apply – and what supermarkets they can apply to get food vouchers from.

This includes Tesco, Asda, Iceland, Morrison’s, M&S and Sainsbury’s.

Other help is on offer if you’re not eligible for the HSF scheme.

Millions are also in line to receive cost of living payments worth up to £1,350.

The first installment of the £900 payment has been paid to millions on certain benefits, including Universal Credit and Pension Credit.

Plus, pensioners who are entitled to a Winter Fuel Payment for winter 2023/24 will get an extra £150 or £300 paid on top of their normal payment from November this year.

You will be eligible for a Winter Fuel Payment this winter if you were born before September 25, 1957.

Those eligible for the payment will receive a letter in October and November telling them how much money to expect.

There’s a one-off fuel voucher from your energy supplier if you’re on a prepayment meter.
