LA Emergency Financial Assistance

There is also financial assistance available in case of an emergency:-

Statutory guidance to accompany the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 on page 8 states:-

2.10 Power to provide emergency assistance in cash (adults)
The authority retains its power to provide assistance in cash as well as ―in kind‖
in the case of an emergency. This remains a different form of assistance to a
direct payment (which is now covered under the 2013 Act).
