  • Meet immediate short-term needs in an emergency or as a result of a disaster
  • Return to or remain in the community and help them to live independently in their own home
  • To meet essential travelling expenses, for example to attend a funeral of a close relative

For more information see the Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council website.
