Provides financial help to Surrey residents who have nowhere else to turn in an emergency or following a disaster.
Such needs may include food, cooking equipment, bedding and travel costs in an emergency. The scheme also provides assistance to help set up a home in the community (for example when someone is released from prison or another institution) or to enable someone to remain in their home.
The type of support a person receives will depend on their needs and what other services and support are available in the community.
For more information on the scheme please see Surrey County Council's website.
