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).


For other times, the fund may be able to assist, please click here to find out more.

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.
