Scottish Welfare Fund

The Scottish Welfare Fund can give you help with things like food or heating costs if you have a crisis or need help to carry on living outside of care.

Please note, should you apply to the Scottish Welfare Fund for assistance we will use the information provided on your application to maximise your entitlement to the following available supports where applicable - Council Tax Reduction, Free School Meals/School Clothing Grants, Discretionary Housing Payments.

Whilst our application form gives an option of a preferred method of contact, this is not guaranteed as we must speak to you by telephone to verify security and identity checks.

Any support you receive from the Scottish Welfare Fund will not affect your entitlement to benefits. 

The following leaflets from the Scottish Government provides further information on the fund.
