Diet Supplement

This payment may be made to people who, due to ill health or a particular medical condition, require a special diet. You will have to show that your income does not allow you to meet these special needs and you will also need a letter from your dietician and/or consultant saying that you need a particular diet type.

Community Welfare Officers (CWO's) have guidelines to decide how much the extra dietary needs or heating will cost and how much help/assistance you should get.
