Local Welfare Provision

The Local Welfare Provision (LWP) scheme provides critical short-term help and assistance with limited one-off household goods. All awards are discretionary and considered on each applicant’s circumstances.

If you need help with food and/or fuel please visit our cost of living help hub.

If you are eligible to apply for a Budgeting Loan, Budgeting Advance, or Hardship Payment from the Department for Work and Pensions, you must do this before applying to our scheme.
