Grants and loans if you get certain benefits

The Council has introduced a Crisis Loan Service. Laser Credit Union will deliver this from 1 April 2015.

The scheme will provide interest free loans of up to £120 for people who are in urgent need, under pressure, or who need support to remain or settle in the community.

To qualify for support you must be a resident of Rotherham.

Laser Credit Union will carry out a financial assessment to see if you can have the loan. You will need to provide supporting evidence requested by Laser before we can issue a payment.

To be able to receive the payment you will need to open an account at Laser Credit Union. You must also have a benefit or other income redirected into your Laser account until the loan is repaid.
