Family Help & Support



With October Half Term fast approaching, we know some families will struggle to afford essentials.

Families with children who receive traditional free school meals and are in receipt of a qualifying benefit, may also be entitled to help towards their water bills from Welsh Water.

What financial support is available from Welsh Water?
By switching to Welsh Water’s HelpU tariff, customers could save up to £230 off their water bill. Find out more here.
