Argyll and Bute
The Scottish Welfare Fund is a national scheme run by local authorities in Scotland.
To apply for a Scottish Welfare Fund grant and for more information see the Argyll and Bute Council website, which states that:
The Fund is normally a one-off grant for living expenses or household goods. It is limited to the amount of money that is made available to the council every year, therefore payments may be restricted. The council regularly reviews the priority levels which we are able to support and these may be set differently for Crisis Grants and Community Care Grants. We will always support a high priority crisis grant application made at any time throughout the year.
