Scottish Welfare Fund - Can I get help from the Scottish Welfare Fund?

The Scottish Welfare Fund is made up of two types of grants which do not have to be repaid - Crisis Grants and Community Care Grants. Crisis Grants are intended to provide a safety net in an emergency when there is an immediate threat to health and safety. Community Care Grants are intended to enable independent living or continued independent living, preventing the need for institutional care.

Can I get help from the Scottish Welfare Fund?

You must be on a low income to get help from the Scottish Welfare Fund.

Crisis Grants are linked to qualifying benefits (with an option for local discretion).

There is a fixed budget for each Local Authority so applications will be prioritised.
