Scottish Welfare Fund Independent Review Service.

We are the Scottish Welfare Fund independent review service at the SPSO. We carry out independent reviews of decisions the councils make on community care, and crisis grant applications. 

If you would like to apply for a crisis or community care grant you should contact your local council.  You cannot apply to us.
