The local welfare assistance scheme for Southampton is called Support in a Crisis. For more information see the Southampton City Council website, which states that:

Rather than setting up a new scheme the council is working with local organisations to provide a range of help, including advice and support in kind like food vouchers and second hand furniture. 

If you are struggling in a crisis it is really important that you get help. There are lots of organisations in the city that can offer support:

  • Homelessness
  • Mental Health
  • Domestic Violence
  • Family Support
  • Advice Services or Welfare Rights and Money Advice
How to apply

The website includes the number and opening hours of the Southampton Welfare Information Phone Line, which you can phone for more information about local support.
