Our grant criteria:

All applications must be submitted by a third party agency – we cannot accept referrals from individuals, their family or friends.

Examples of third party agents include local authorities, social services, housing associations, charities and community groups, health practitioners, citizens advice bureaux, ministers of religion, or other support agencies. Please contact us before completing the process if you are unsure if your organisation is eligible.

The Charity’s beneficiaries should have limited means and we have devised a fair system of calculating who is eligible for our assistance. When making a decision on a grant application, we take into account income, any capital assets and any family support available.

Our criteria are reviewed from time to time to ensure that they meet the needs of applicants and the resources of the Charity.

As a charity our funds are necessarily limited and unfortunately we are not always able to meet demand.
