Crisis Support Service

If you are on a low income (or somebody you are supporting is) and need help setting up a home, the Essential Household Items Scheme may be able to assist

The Crisis Support service provides support for people experiencing a crisis beyond their control.  It is designed to assist the most vulnerable in meeting short-term needs and to promote their continued independence within the community. The scheme focuses support through the provision of household items for Lancashire residents meeting eligibility criteria.
