The local welfare assistance scheme for Sefton is called the Emergency Limited Assistance Scheme. It can provide

  • urgent help with the costs of food, essential goods for children, gas, electricity or emergency travel
  • furniture or essential domestic appliances because you are setting up home, moving from care, have suffered a disaster (such as a fire or flood) or have had to move due to violence, fear of violence or other reasons

For more information see the Sefton Council website.
