Financial aid for care-experienced people of all ages

From Maureen Allan, CEO, VCEL

Hi All,

Who Cares? Scotland have received some funding from the Scottish Government to offer financial aid for Care Experienced People to relieve fuel, material, and food poverty.

They can support people to get immediate help for essential items such as food, heating, clothing, nappies, bedding, furniture and while goods.

 The application form is online at

There is a flyer that can be used to promote the offer.

What does ‘Care Experienced’ mean?

The term Care Experienced refers to anyone who has been or is currently in care or from a looked-after background at any stage in their life, no matter how short, including adopted children who were previously looked-after.

This might include kinship care; looked after at home; residential care; foster care; secure care; or adoption.
