Hardship fund scheme

The hardship fund scheme is a discretionary service which supports qualifying residents in extreme emergency situations.

It provides awards of between £10 and £100 so long as this need cannot be met elsewhere, such as through grants from The Department for Work and Pensions.
This service is only for short term support and where there is a risk to the safety and/or health of the household. It is not to be used to subsidise you while you wait for a payment of a means tested benefits.
It will:

  • assist people to remain or return to the community
  • help people who are suffering severe and exceptional hardship

The hardship scheme is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am-12pm. We will only be able to consider applications for assistance on these days and times.
