Self Isolation Support Grant
Self Isolation Support Grant – you may be eligible for a grant if you or a child or person you care for is required to self-isolate by the Test and Protect Services and are on a low income benefit or earn less than the Real Living wage and will lose earned income.

Flexible Food Fund
New financial assistance from the Scottish Government to access food, fuel and other essentials is now available to Moray residents.   This fund is available from 5th January 2022 to 31 March 2022 as a new one-off payment.

The existing monthly payment, from the Flexible Food Fund (FFF), towards food costs will be enhanced to incorporate a contribution towards fuel costs.
Based on previous rounds of the FFF it is anticipated that over 700 households are likely to access this funding with a budget of £163,000 allocated to provide a single payment to eligible householders.

Previous recipients of the FFF are able to claim as well as new applicants from 5 January 2022.

Entitlement is based on individual household circumstances and is part of a wider package of support provided by Money Advice Moray, such as:

  • Ensuring households get all the benefit income they are entitled to.
  • Support with budgeting income and outgoings.
  • Help with bills and debts e.g. negotiating reduced payments with creditors on your behalf.
  • Help to appeal benefit decisions

To access this support applicants should telephone 0300 123 4563.

Organisations and support services acting on behalf of those in need can refer clients by completing this referral form.
