Document Library: EIA - Local Assistance Scheme Stage 1

The national Social Fund Discretionary Scheme for Crisis Loans and Community Care Grants comes to an end on 31ST March 2013 to be replaced by a locally determined system of Local Assistance Scheme (LAS). The funding made available by Government for the new scheme will be cash limited. The aim of the new support scheme is to provide financial assistance to island residents for general living expenses who are in genuine hardship and can not be met through other means. 

This is a pilot year scheme to enable the Council to monitor, evaluate and deliver a responsive scheme of local assistance and will be delivered through the grant funding available of £344K.
