Welfare Trust

Welfare Trust charitable payments are administered by the Welfare Rights Team.

If you are in a crisis situation and need funds for day to day living expenses for essential items such as food, heating costs, nappies, toiletries and travel costs do not apply to the Welfare Trust.  Apply for a Crisis Grant instead.

Before making an application to the Welfare Trust, applicants should consider whether their need(s) can be met via a Community Care Grant. Needs that can be met via a Community Care Grant will not be met via the Welfare Trust.

To be considered for a Welfare Trust payment the applicant / family must:

  • Reside in the Perth & Kinross area
  • Have no savings/capital that can be used to cover the cost of the need
  • Have a low income or be experiencing financial hardship
  • Be vulnerable due to age, ill-health, disability or other disadvantage

The Welfare Trust can only normally meet a one-off need and no more than one award can be made in a financial year (1 April 2024 - 31 March 2025).

Welfare Trust payments cannot replicate / duplicate assistance that is provided elsewhere e.g. through statutory or other provision.

Apply Online  or contact our Welfare Rights Team on 01738 476900 (option 1).
