The local welfare assistance scheme for South Gloucestershire is called the Welfare Grant Scheme. The scheme can pay awards under two types of need:
- to people who require immediate support, and
- to people who require assistance to establish or maintain a home in the community
For details about the awards see the South Gloucestershire Council website.
