Local Welfare Assistance Fund after April 2105
We, the undersigned call on Government to rethink its decision to scrap the £347 million Local Welfare Assistance fund. This fund is used by councils to provide emergency support. Its removal will make it increasingly difficult to help vulnerable people facing short-term crises, as well as place an enormous strain on third sector organisations in local communities who exist to help those in need.
