Other Sources of support

The Scottish Welfare Fund is a scheme which has been tailored by the Scottish Government to provide a safety net in disaster or emergency, or to enable independent living in the community.

Crisis grants don’t need to be repaid and are available to apply for by people who do not have alternative means of paying for what they need. They are intended to meet one off needs rather than on going expenses.

The quickest and easiest way to apply is to check the website for the Local Authority area that you live in.
