Support available from the Scottish Welfare Fund

Financial hardship

We are reminding local residents who may be struggling financially they can apply to the Scottish Welfare Fund for help with essential living costs.

The Scottish Welfare Fund is open to residents who are in receipt of benefits or on low incomes and require assistance with food or heating costs. There are two grants within the fund. The Crisis Grant is available for those in a crisis situation such as a fire or flood in the home or unexpected financial hardship. The Community Care Grant helps with costs to live in the community or keep your family together.

Once a Crisis Grant application has been made, we will make a decision no later than the end of the next working day. The grant is tax free and doesn't need to be paid back.
