General information

Service offered: Scottish Welfare Fund is a fund that provides GRANTS (not repayable) to persons in crisis due to a disaster or an emergency.  In the case of an emergency, applications can be made for short-term living expenses. In the case of a disaster, applications can be made for living expenses or household items. A Crisis Grant may not be awarded if the applicant can access other resources to tide them over the crisis. We also administer COMMUNITY CARE GRANTS to assist people to set up home, or to stay within the community rather than go into care. Applications can be made for essential items such as furniture and household equipment. Discretionary Housing Payments is a fund from which we can provide short term assistance with housing
