Guidance covering the Scottish Welfare Fund and Self-Isolation Support Grant (SISG).

This document is part of a collection


Management information

Local authorities are required to record the total number of SISG applications and awards and the total expenditure on such awards on a monthly basis.

Local authorities are required to record the total number of Public Health fund and Crisis Grants applications and awards made (under 11.19 and 11.20) and the total expenditure on such awards on a monthly basis.

 An additional spreadsheet for this purpose will be provided by Scottish Government to local authorities. The recording of application reference numbers of all applications will allow the statistics for these types of applications to be separated from the main quarterly SWF statistics in the official Scottish Government statistics publication. The additional spreadsheet should be completed and submitted at the same time as the SWF Management return.  SISG should not be included as part of the statistics for ordinary Crisis Grants.
