Flexible Support Fund

This is fund available to claimants who need additional financial support. Examples of this are:

  • Barriers to Work (i.e. travel to interview or to start a job until wages are received)
  • Clothes for interview
  • Clothes needed to start work (not Personal Protective Equipment-PPE)
  • Travel to undertake training authorised by DWP
  • Childcare to undertake training authorised by DWP
  • Replacement care to undertake training authorised by DWP
  • Tools to start a Job.

The list is not exhaustive.

The fund can be accessed via a DWP Work, and payments are issued with their discretion. However, there are occasions where a payment cannot be made; a full explanation will be given if this is the case.


For more information please contact your TFEA or local Jobcentre Plus Office/Universal Credit Outlet
