The Trust makes available small grants to help individuals in need, it has no restrictions on the type of beneficiary.
As the effects of Covid-19 look to continue for many weeks and months the Trust have changed how they work.
They are able to accept new applications from 11am each Monday (then between 9am to 6pm daily). Once they have received as many applications as they can potentially fund for a week, you will not be able to submit any new applications until 11am the following Monday. This will be a Tuesday if Monday is a bank holiday
They provide timely, small, one-off grants to individuals and families in need of financial support
In light of an upturn in applications the categories they consider for grants have now had to be prioritised. This is detailed as follows with the categories lower down the list only being provided with a grant in exceptional cases or not at all:
- White goods (cookers, washing machines, refrigeration)
- Beds & Mattresses
- Childrens’ clothing
- Baby needs
- Adult clothing
- Household items
- Educational computer equipment/TV license
- Vocational training/driving lessons
Equipment and adaptions applications will still be considered but within the budgetary constraints identified above.
They invite applications from referral agencies on behalf of individuals as they believe that by working with others they can provide greater support.
Apply any time.
