A crisis grant may help if:

    • You experience a disaster like a fire or a flood
    • You have a personal emergency
    • You need help with costs that have arisen as a result of emergency or disaster, to keep you and your family safe from harm.

The help you may get will depend on the issues you might be facing. You might get money, or another form of support such as a voucher, fuel card or furniture.

A Crisis Grant could help if your benefits are stopped or suspended and you don't have money for electricity or food.
