Crisis loans & community care grants are changing - have your say
Leicestershire County Council would like your comments on its proposed changes to some aspects of welfare provision in Leicestershire.
From 1st April 2013, the Government is transferring responsiblity for some aspects of welfare funding to local councils, which up to now have been known as crisis loans and community care grants.
Leicestershire County Council says:
"Local councils will now be responsible for a very different service.
We have a much smaller budget and will be issuing grants and advice, rather than loans and advice.
This new service will be called 'Leicestershire Welfare Provision' and we've had to devise new rules around who is eligible.
We would like to hear from people who may use the new service, to find out the best way of delivering it."
