Welfare Fund Guidance Notes
The Welfare Fund is aimed at those who are experiencing poverty. They may have been claiming benefits for some time and may also be suffering from a long term heath condition which prevents them from working.
The Fund is to help people buy essential things that will make a positive contribution to their day- to-day well -being.
Our awards are normally a few hundred pounds in value and a successful award will be made in the form of vouchers, a bank transfer or through our own suppliers.
Please check that you are making a request for something we can help with and that you fit the criteria. If it has been more than 12 months since you received your last award you may apply again but priority will be given to new applicants and we will offer a maximum of three awards per household over three years.
