Discretionary Assistance Fund - How Can DAF Help?
The Discretionary Assistance Fund is a fund of last resort. That means the Fund is designed to support people who cannot access any other help or funding at specific times of need – either in an emergency/crisis or when moving home (for specific reasons only).
- There are a range of items and situations that DAF does not support – what DAF does not support.
- An EAP can help if you have experienced an emergency or disaster – have you experienced an emergency or disaster?
- An IAP can help if you are moving house, but only if you meet the qualifying conditions – are you moving home?
- An IAP – can help if you are trying to remain in your home, but only if you meet the qualifying conditions. Do you need assistance to stay in your home?
If you are working with an organisation to support you, it may be worth speaking to your support worker or similar before you contact the DAF – they may be able to help you with your application. Click here to find out how to get help to complete an application.
