Emergency help and grants
The government's national Social Fund ended in April 2013. The crisis loans and community care grants that were part of the funds are replaced by a new local welfare provision which is administered by Central Bedfordshire Council.
Who can apply?
If you are aged 16 or older, are living in Central Bedfordshire (either for 6 of the last 12 months or for 3 of the last 5 years) and have experienced a crisis or an emergency, you can apply to the local scheme.
