We know that sudden unexpected costs can create real challenges for our residents who are experiencing financial hardship.
The Welfare Support Scheme helps our most vulnerable residents at times of crisis when there is no other means of support.
The Household Support Fund is available to provide short-term help to meet immediate needs and help those who are struggling to afford the essentials this winter. We are awaiting details of the new Household Support Fund and will update the website when we have more details
Due to the limited amount of funds we have available, we will prioritise items necessary for day to day living such as food, energy and water. Each request for help will be considered on an individual basis by our welfare officers.
