We know that unexpected situations and difficult times arise for everyone. If you’re having a hard time with money, we may be able to help. We provide means tested financial assistance in the form of monthly shortfall grants and donations for one off expenses.
We understand that each individual's circumstances are just that, individual, so please contact us to discuss your particular situation to see if we can help.
We can provide financial support for:
Winter fuel payments
You might hesitate to turn up the thermostat if you're worried about how to pay the bills. That's why we're committed to making a fuel payment each winter to those who need it.
Billions of pounds in benefits go unclaimed every year - from pension and tax credits to housing benefits and maternity grants. You may find yourself navigating the benefits system for the first time, or just trying to make sense of it all. We'll explore your options together and can even complete the applications with you.
Residential care top up fees
We can offer support with the top up costs of residential care or fund respite costs where care is being provided at home. Contact us to find out if you or someone you know is eligible for our support.
Business start-up support
Thinking of starting your own business? If you’re unemployed or facing redundancy, you could qualify for a business start-up fund of up to £2000. You can also benefit from free business coaching to get your idea off the ground.
