Earlier this year we reported that the Scottish Social Welfare Fund, which has replaced certain aspects of the Social Fund and is administered in Glasgow by Glasgow City Council, had paid out much less than anticipated, prompting concerns that vulnerable individuals were losing out due to lack of knowledge.  We are now aware that many of the first applications were classed as low priority and refused, however, GCC has changed its approach and is approving loans and grants outwith high priority rankings.
