Thank you for your interest in campaigning for local crisis support!
Local emergency funds provide a lifeline for families in crisis, keeping the bills paid and food on the table. The Government have allocated £490 million in instalments since last March, but these funds have always come with a deadline.
Councils face unprecedented pressure in the wake of the pandemic. Without plans for long-term support, many schemes risk closure, cutting a vital lifeline for struggling families.
We can’t afford another short-term fix. After a year of uncertainty, we need to secure long-term funding, strengthening the safety net for those who need it most.
The petition was handed in on 14 July, but the fight doesn't stop there.
