Gloucestershire Welfare Support Scheme
The fund provides practical support to eligible adults and families for food, gas/electricity top ups and household items such as furniture including white goods/appliances and furniture. Auriga Services Ltd administers the delivery of the Gloucestershire Welfare Support Scheme.
In April 2020 Gloucestershire County Council approved plans to extend the existing Welfare Support Scheme for a time limited period to provide support to people and families in hardship as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a time-limited extension to the scheme and Gloucestershire County Council will review and adjust the scheme as required depending on how the situation evolves.
Support agencies have told us they are pleased with the scheme to date as it is straight forward to access and provides appropriate support to the right people quickly.
