DWP axed Community Care Grants and Crisis Loans back in April as part of welfare cuts however I've discovered Sheffield Council now operate their own replacement called local assistance grants or local assistance loans!

You still need to be getting certain benefits and meet other criteria but it's good to know help is still there for those of us who need it!

You apply on the councils website search for local assistance scheme

Would you rather see convicts get given no help and therefore increasing their chances of re-offending?

Before we even think about offering them anything, they first need to show that they can help themselves, by not breaking the law again as soon as they find themselves in a sticky situation.
