Discretionary Support Provision

Published on: 23 April, 2013

This consultation was to obtain views on the design of the new Discretionary Support provision for vulnerable people living within Northern Ireland.

The service will replace the existing Social Fund provision of Community Care Grants and Crisis Loans for living expenses and household items which are due to be abolished as part of the Welfare Reform Bill.  The new service will provide access to discretionary support to the most vulnerable living on low incomes, who find themselves in the most exceptional, extreme or crisis situations.

DSD was keen to hear from interested parties and individuals on the policy proposals and NIFHA was pleased to respond: Discretionary Support Provision consultation response_160413
