The local welfare assistance scheme for Knowlsey is called the Emergency Support Scheme. For more information see the Knowsley Council website, which states that:

If you are on a low income and have experienced an unexpected event which has left you with no food or fuel to heat your home, you may qualify for a minimum of 3 days support under the Council’s Emergency Support Scheme. 

A briefing on the Knowsley scheme was provided to CPAG in 2014, which you can download from the link on the right hand side of this page.
