Scottish Welfare Fund

The Scottish Welfare Fund helps families and people in Scotland who are on low incomes through Crisis Grants and Community Care Grants.

There are two different grants, depending on your circumstances: 

  • Crisis Grants to help cover living costs in the case of an emergency or to cover living costs and replace household goods as a result of a disaster such as a fire or flood.  
  • Community Care Grants to help cover the costs of setting up or maintaining a home and to support individuals and families facing exceptional pressure.
