Local Welfare Provision
The council's Local Welfare Provision scheme can provide welfare support under certain circumstances.
If you are struggling financially, vulnerable, and unable to meet your immediate needs, you may be eligible for support.
- Crisis Support may provide help with food where a foodbank is unable to help and fuel (only for prepayment meter customers) where you have experienced an unforeseen crisis or emergency
- Community Care Support can, in certain circumstances, help with the costs of essential furniture and white goods when moving into a new home - or by exception - with replacement items
