Local Crisis Prevention Fund

Local Crisis Prevention Fund (LCPF) can help someone in financial crisis by giving them an emergency payment for essentials.

These include food, fuel – gas or electricity (not British Gas customers), household furniture or white goods such as a fridge or cooker. Recipients won’t have to pay anything back.

To apply for the voucher email: lcpf@bristol.gov.uk, include your/resident’s full name and address.

You can also phone: 0117 922 4500, Monday to Friday, 9am to 12noon (they can’t take household goods applications by phone).

You can also go in person to: Citizen Service Point, 100 Temple Street, Bristol, BS1 6AG (by appointment only). You’ll need to collect emergency payments here.
