There are times when emergencies mean that it is a struggle even to find the essentials.
Here are two ways you can apply for some emergency payments or ‘in kind’ support. In kind support means that instead of money to buy the item that you need, you are given the item instead.
- You will find information and be able to apply for The Discretionary Assistance Fund here
- You can search for grants through the Turn2us website here
Of course, emergencies happen for a whole range of reasons and some of those are very complicated. You will always find clear advice at your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
