Let’s Talk Money – Scottish Welfare Fund

Are you, like so many others, struggling to manage financially?

You are not alone, and we have a small, but committed team at the Council who are here to try and help with financial support and advice.

If you’re on a low income, or getting certain benefits, assistance could be available from the Scottish Welfare Fund.

Under the Fund, two types of grant are available – Crisis Grants (one-off payments) and Community Care Grants (helping people leaving care to live on their own, or to stay in their own home or to help folk facing exceptional pressures and needing essential household items).

Further information is available on www.mygov.scot/scottish-welfare-fund.

If you wish to discuss if you are eligible for help via the Scottish Welfare Fund contact Orkney Islands Council on 01856 886312 or email SWF@Orkney.gov.uk.
