Local welfare assistance is an emergency financial payment and is there to help people to try to maintain an independent life or for those facing an immediate financial crisis. You can also request assistance with a rent deposit and/or rent in advance or if you have a shortfall in rent. Discretionary Housing Payments can be awarded to assist with your housing costs if you are already in receipt of housing benefit or you will be entitled to housing benefit once you move into your new property. The local welfare assistance team can also help with debt advice, budgeting and improving chances of finding a job. For further information and to apply, click on the link below.
