How to apply for a Flexible Support Fund
You can claim a Flexible Support Fund for things such as formal work clothing, travel costs or work wear. You must be able to show evidence that you need these costs covered because you have an interview or a job start.
You can also claim a Flexible Support Fund if you are self-employed. For example, if you are working and earning doing deliveries but your bicycle needs repairing, you could be considered for the fund.
Please speak to your Universal Credit Work Coach if you think you would qualify for a Flexible Support Fund payment.
