Humanitarian Assistance Scheme

The Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys, TD, has confirmed that the Humanitarian Assistance Scheme is available to provide support to those living in properties directly affected by flooding in Counties Cork and #Waterford following #StormBabet.

The Humanitarian Assistance Scheme prevents hardship by providing income-tested financial support to people whose homes are damaged from flooding and severe weather events and who are unable to meet costs for essential needs, household items and structural repair.

If any homeowner affected by Storm Babet needs to access these supports, they can contact the Community Welfare Service by phoning 0818 60 70 80.

For those in Waterford affected by Storm Babet, please call the above number or email
