Discretionary Welfare Assistance Scheme

The South Worcestershire Discretionary Welfare Assistance Scheme  provides assistance in the form of goods or vouchers to help individuals or families facing exceptionally difficult circumstances or an emergency.

The scheme will be used to complement other services across South Worcestershire and will not cover needs more appropriately addressed by other funds or benefits – such as Discretionary Housing Payments or the remaining elements of the Social Fund.

This service is provided in South Worcestershire by Worcester City Council.
