Help in Emergencies for Local People (HELP)

Evidence needed

When applying to the HELP scheme, you may be asked for more information to help us decide if an award can be made.

The request can be made before we complete your application or proof of anything you have bought may be requested after any payment is made.

Unless proof is already held by us, the following will be required:

  • National Insurance number
  • photograph of you
  • identity, benefits, other income and capital (bank statements)
  • proof of where you live
  • proof of the emergency/crisis
  • proof of your outgoings
  • any other evidence that we may ask for.
