Scottish welfare fund

 This fund provides three types of discretionary grants:

  • crisis grants to help you if you are in crisis because of a disaster or an emergency (this will usually be for people on benefits)
  • family reunion crisis grant for refugee families, who settle in Scotland under family reunion rules.

  • community care grants to help you, if you are on benefits, and you need support either to prevent you going into care or to help you leave any form of care and set up your own home.
