Food and clothing bank

When you apply for a community care or crisis grant from the Scottish Welfare Fund, we will also offer you emergency food and clothing support. 

Some food and clothing banks can give you support even if you don't have a referral. However, because you can only use them in emergency for a short time, we want to help you find other support to meet your needs.

Details of other support available can be found on the support for families guidance.

For guidance contact any of your Citizens Advice Edinburgh offices.
