Local Welfare Provision

Local Welfare Provision (LWP) schemes are run by local Councils and can help you if you are in urgent need following an emergency or change in circumstances. 

The offer varies from Council to Council. The scheme might provide vouchers for essential furniture items such as beds, cookers and fridges. While they don't normally offer cash grants, they may also provide help with food and fuel costs.
