Cost of Living Support through the Local Welfare Assistance Scheme (LWAS)
The Local Welfare Assistance Scheme (LWAS) helps those experiencing financial hardship. There are lots of reasons why people may be in hardship, and if you are eligible, we can provide financial help.
The scheme is not intended as emergency support, and only one application can be made per household. LWAS is not intended as long-term support. The quickest way to make an application is via the webform, using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. If you have all the information required to make an application, the webform will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
To make an application and find out whether you are eligible for support, please visit the Local Welfare Assistance Scheme below.
In the event you are not eligible, but would like to read more information about other support available, please visit Suffolk County Council's Cost of Living Support scheme below.
