Scottish Welfare Fund

What is the Scottish Welfare Fund?

The Scottish Welfare Fund is a discretionary scheme we deliver that provides two types of grant: Community Care Grants and Crisis Grants.

Community Care Grants

Community Care Grants may be issued to people who need support to live independently in the community, and will mostly provide items such as furniture or household appliances.

Crisis Grants

Crisis Grants may be provided for basic short term living expenses in the event of a disaster such as fire or flood or emergencies like losing money or having to travel to visit a sick child in hospital.
