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

This scheme provides in-kind support wherever possible rather than cash grants and may be available to you if you are experiencing a crisis or an emergency.

You can download the Lambeth scheme guidance notes and FAQs that were provided to CPAG in 2015 from the links on the right of this page.

How to apply

You can only apply online

If you need support with making an application, 'Digi-buddies' sessions are available at locations around the borough. For times and locations, please see the events calendar.
