13 semi-structured interviews were carried out on members of the low-income community to explore their experiences as recipients of welfare. The interviews sought to understand the reasons why they sought financial aid, and the difficulties they faced in seeking welfare. The information was categorised according to existing welfare schemes, and suggestions are made for how community or non-governmental funds might be tailored to fill the gaps.
