South Tyneside

The local welfare assistance scheme for South Tyneside is called Local Welfare Provision. It can offer two types of support:

  • Crisis expenses, where, because of a disaster, there is a serious short term risk to your health and safety or that of your family and you have no other means of meeting your needs
  • Community care support, where we may provide household goods to help people and families under severe pressure

For more information see the South Tyneside Council website and the following documents that were provided to CPAG in 2014, which you can download from the links on the right hand side of this page:
