Bromley Welfare Fund

This a is a scheme is to help Bromley residents on low incomes to:

  • Establish in the community following a stay in temporary accommodation provided by Bromley Council
  • Establish in the community following a stay in hospital or similar settings  
  • Maintain a home in the community
  • Settle in to accommodation when they are discharged from the council’s homeless duty

The scheme will cover applications for the following: 

  • Furniture – beds only
  • Household equipment – cooker, fridge freezer

Awards are discretionary. The funding for the scheme is limited, so we may not be able to help everyone in need. There is no duty on the council to make an award and each application will be considered on its own merits.

We are unable to give awards for emergency payments or for replacement goods.
