Discretionary Assistance Fund - Next Steps
Once you have redeemed your items, and they have been delivered and installed in your home – it is important to keep your receipts for 12 months in case we have any queries about your purchases.
Did you know there is help available to sort your money issues, benefit issues or even help you start to save some money with organisations like your local credit union?
It is important, once you have had support from the DAF that you get extra help & support to ensure you don’t need to come back to the Fund in the future.
There are maximum numbers of awards you can receive from the DAF, so please do get advice and help before you reach this.
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.
