Applicants for Community Care Grants are strictly done online, however we understand from time to time you may need a bit extra support.
This option should only be used once you have tried to Apply online and you do not have friends, family or a support worker that can assist you. You can also go into your local Council Customer Service Centre and request they help you fill out the application. Please remember to be successfully awarded you MUST meet fund qualifying conditions.
