This will replace the current Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Social Fund and Crisis Loans scheme. We want to hear your views and comments on our draft proposals which are available online at

We want to develop a scheme which can meet the short term needs of an individual or a family in the event of a crisis or emergency, for example, a grant to provide essential clothing or bedding. Your views will help us to develop a replacement scheme which meets the needs of South Gloucestershire residents so we would encourage as many people as possible to have a say.

Further details and the draft proposals are available at  Alternatively, you can email or call 01454 868002 for more information.

The consultation runs until Friday 8 February.
