Budgeting Loans

A Budgeting Loan can help pay for:
  • furniture or household items (for example, washing machines or other ‘white goods’);
  • clothes or footwear;
  • rent in advance;
  • costs linked to moving house;
  • maintenance, improvements or security for your home;
  • travelling costs within the UK;
  • costs linked to getting a new job;
  • maternity costs;
  • funeral costs;
  • repaying hire purchase loans;
  • repaying loans taken for the above items.
Crisis Loans are no longer available.
You may be eligible for a Budgeting Loan if you have been on certain benefits for 6 months.
You only have to pay back the amount you borrow, and repayments are taken automatically from your benefits.
