East Lancashire crisis loans fund slashed by third

CRISIS loans for some of East Lancashire’s neediest families will be heavily slashed for 2013, it has been revealed.

Government revisions of the Social Fund, which provides emergency payouts for everything from living expenses to furniture for poverty-hit households, will be cut by hundreds of thousands of pounds from this April.

Replacing the Social Fund will be a new Care and Urgent Needs Support scheme, which will be administered by the likes of Lancashire County Council and Blackburn with Darwen Council.

But the budget handed out to serve Lancashire’s 12 districts is just £2.9million – when the payouts for 2011-12 topped £4.56million.

That year’s bill for Burnley alone was £497,000, Hyndburn’s £457,000, Pendle’s £369,700 and Rossendale people claimed £260,200 with thousands of people helped with grants up to around £1,500.

Blackburn with Darwen can look forward to an allocation fund of £645,138 – and their bill for the same 12-month period was more than £953,000.

The county council’s new scheme will be delivered by its new benefits service, administered by One Connect, through its partnership with telecoms giant BT.

County officials say their system will not only concentrate on giving ‘one-off payments’ but will also focus on why individuals require financial assistance, and customers may be directed towards money advice services.

Only two applications by individuals will be nominally be considered as part of the new county set-up in any one year – though this has been criticised by welfare rights campaigners during public consultations.

Final decisions need to be taken on whether assistance will take the form of cash payments or vouchers for goods or services.

Hyndburn Council leader Miles Parkinson said he believed the poorest were being unfairly hit the hardest. He said: “People are being labelled as skivers but unfortunately at certain times of your life, there needs to be a safety net.

“Of course there are always a few individuals who take advantage, but what we are seeing is that those with the least are going to be affected.

“What you don’t see is any major taxation on multi-national companies who put their limited status in other countries, where the tax is lower.

“The government could simply raise millions by saying that any money earned in this country must be taxed in this country.

“It would bring in far more savings.”

Excellent news, these loans should only be used for the genuine needy cases. I am informed from a good source that they use these crisis loans like an extra cash income, they claim more than the allocated 2 per year and you would be surprised on how many people lose their money out of their pockets on a regular basis. The sooner they bring in some sort of debt card so they can only spend the benefits on what they were intended for, the sooner we will see recovery from supporting this Shameless /Jezza Kyle society we have. Benefits should be gradually reduced month on month to nothing in 2 years if you haven't found a job

Again the poor, working poor, vulnerable and disabled are being targetted. How many who are affected by the 'bedroom tax' & forced to move, have the money to pay for removal costs and replacement carpets, flooring, curtains, etc? Social Fund as it was, helped to pay for these things. They also helped to pay a deposit or upfront rent for a private rented property. Looks like many will be forced from their homes via the eviction route, only to find they can't get any financial help to find a suitable home. Disgusting.

You won't see any, the people on out of work benefits are generally despised by the rest of the population and because of cuts are becoming fewer. Strange that isn't it people who for years couldn't find work have recently.
If they step out of line the law will come down on them like a ton of bricks, and the majority of the population will enjoy watching .

well done keep buying the lies that you get fed from the mainstream media. What will you do when you get made unemployed and you can't feed your family and who is this "good source" that you know.Either start storing food and purchasing silver or it will be your turn for crisis loan applications and food bank visits.

Usual spiteful comment from 2 for 5p. Bevo, you have no idea how strongly people feel about the poorer people of society being held accountable for the failures of the bankers, tax evading companies/individual
s & your beloved government. There are none so blind as those who will not see. Both you & 2 for 5p may one day realise that the economy is not the fault of the general population, but of the greed of those with plenty who want more. Wonder how you will feel if you lose your jobs and can't afford to pay your mortgages. Will you take any job, even part-time to keep hold of your homes. There's a rude awakening for home owners when the Universal Credit starts in October this year.

Have any of you left wing moaners actually read the article? It says the Government has reduced the money to local authorities but it doesn't say the local authorities will cut back on cases of genuine need. That remains to be seen. It looks like LCC are getting ready by merging all its Benefit and Welfare Rights services.

The unemployment rate is just over 2.5 MILLION but there are only 489,000 jobs available,so even if all those vacanices were filled tomorrow you are still going to have 1.5 million on the dole,so what would you do with those 1.5 million.

There are jobs out there if you want to work, I don't listen to the media my sources are people who work at the job centres and they meet allsort from the genuine to those who think it's their right to have benefits as though its a wage and haven't worked a day in their life. I have no problem with the genuine unemployed or disabled but those who cream the system should be dealt with. However I haven't personally met anyone who admits to being a scrounger they all have a good tale to tell why they can't work. Perhaps if they put in as much effort into finding work than they do at justifying their life on benefits they would be working by now.
you listen to job centre staff have they revealed to you that most of them are being made redundant? job centres are closing down around the country as the new rules for finding work have changed and i believe you now get a pin number and search via internet. there are more jobs lost than are being created. but wait there is one for you i heard there are 300 jobs in jeopardy be quick job centre staff are on to them.

How long will it be now before we see hunger marches and political/civil unrest on the streets of Britain i wonder?
You won't see any, the people on out of work benefits are generally despised by the rest of the population and because of cuts are becoming fewer. Strange that isn't it people who for years couldn't find work have recently.
If they step out of line the law will come down on them like a ton of bricks, and the majority of the population will enjoy watching .
We all know what happened to the last lot who said if there is no bread then let them eat cake.

well done keep buying the lies that you get fed from the mainstream media. What will you do when you get made unemployed and you can't feed your family and who is this "good source" that you know.Either start storing food and purchasing silver or it will be your turn for crisis loan applications and food bank visits.

The unemployment rate is just over 2.5 MILLION but there are only 489,000 jobs available,so even if all those vacanices were filled tomorrow you are still going to have 1.5 million on the dole,so what would you do with those 1.5 million.
Apologise for the **** maths there it would be even worse, just over 2 million.So what would happen to them
