South Gloucestershire Welfare Grant Scheme

Changes contained in the Welfare Reform Act 2012 mean that certain elements of the discretionary Social Fund scheme will be replaced by new locally based provision delivered by local authorities.

From 1 April 2013 crisis loans and community care grants were replaced by the welfare grant scheme. These changes mean that you can no longer apply for certain parts of the social fund.

You may be able to get some help if you are

    in a crisis
    in an emergency
    in receipt of certain benefits
    on a very low income
    live in South Gloucestershire
    looking for a home in South Gloucestershire

Please apply on line using South Gloucestershire welfare grant scheme or call 01454 868899.
