We Asked

It is proposed that the Local Welfare Provision for ‘white goods’ and furniture is reduced. The proposal will leave the crisis element for food and utilities at its current level. The Service has managed the previous reduction by working with voluntary suppliers of ‘white goods’ and furniture to supply goods in the first instance and will continue to signpost to those organisations. White goods from voluntary suppliers are all subject to a charge and some also charge a reduced amount for furniture.

The available fund will reduce from £783k to £479k for 2019/20 and further reduce to £323k for 2020/21.
