Carers of East Lothian (COEL) has received additional funding from East Lothian Health & Social Care Partnership (ELHSCP) to offer small grants of up to £80 to carers who are facing financial insecurity. Higher awards may be made in exceptional circumstances.
If you are struggling to pay essential bills or buy food (and other basic necessities such as sanitary products) please contact us on 0131 665 0135 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a call from our welfare rights worker Lisa McIlwraith.
Our welfare rights worker will go through a short application form with you over the phone and discuss any other financial support you may be entitled to at the same time.
Please apply as soon as possible. The fund will close once all monies have been spent.
