A Pobl Trust Move-On Grant provides up to £250 to Pobl Customers who are moving from Pobl Supported Accommodation Services into their own accommodation. It is designed to provide support in the form of vouchers to purchase essential items to furnish and equip a new home. The Pobl Trust will consider funding items that may not be considered essential under DAF eligibility criteria if the case can be made that this item will have a positive impact on the individual applying.
A Pobl Trust Move-On Grant is aimed at Pobl Customers who have been unable to source, or have been turned down for, financial support or the provision of essential items through all other relevant schemes, trusts and public funds. This includes support mechanisms provided by Pobl, and via public channels including (but not limited to):
National Schemes such as the Discretionary Assistance Fund (DAF). Run by the Welsh Government, this fund helps pay for essential costs, such as food, gas, electricity, clothing or emergency travel if you are experiencing extreme financial hardship, have lost your job or have applied for benefits and are waiting for your first payment. It also provides grants to help you or someone you care for live independently in their home or a property that you or they are moving into. Full details and application process here: Discretionary Assistance Fund

Local council support schemes: Each local authority is responsible for providing help to its residents struggling with an emergency, such as you or your families’ health being at risk, not being able to afford to buy food, needing help to stay in your own home and coming out of care, hospital or prison.
