The team run a non-cash scheme, which provides support like:

  • food parcels
  • furniture and white goods through referrals to credit unions
  • relevant advice to alleviate longer-term problems (e.g debt advice, budgeting awareness)

There is a limit on the number of times a person may apply for help.

This has replaced the Social Fund, Community Care Grant and Crisis Loan schemes.
