Poor Relief Department

The Poor Relief programme has been divided into two areas of concentration: Out-door Poor and In-door Poor. The Out-door Poor programme assists persons who may be on the street or who may have a residence but are finding it quite difficult to make ends meet.

The In-door Poor programme is operated from within the Parish Infirmary. It caters primarily to the elderly and those persons who are unable to care for themselves and in need of shelter. However, the beneficiaries are classified as those people who are in need of temporary shelter and nutrition.
