The Government is proposing that their funding for the Welfare Assistance Fund ceases in May 2015.
The Local Government Association has said that if this proposal goes ahead support through the scheme will ‘have to be scaled back or scrapped completely in almost three-quarters of council areas’.
Inclusion London believes it is vital that funding for the scheme to continue, so as many organisations as possible need to respond to the consultation.
