Financial Support for Clients

8th December, 2020 | 10:00am

In November 2016 the discretionary support scheme replaced aspects of the social fund, a series of loans and grants designed to support individuals who were experiencing a financial crisis. This webinar will give a comprehensive overview of the operation of the scheme, as well as highlighting the changes introduced due to Covid-19.

Delivered by Law Centre NI adviser Rachael Jeffers, the session will focus on loans and grants available to people, including the Covid-19 specific measures, and the interaction between the various support schemes.
