Find out if you are eligible for help before you apply.
After you have completed and submitted your application form we will get in contact with you. If your application meets our criteria we may request additional information and arrange a home visit.
At the home visit our Welfare Adviser, or Local Visitor, can talk through the issues you are facing in more detail and assess your financial position. Where income is insufficient to meet ordinary expenditure we can look at ways in which to help you make the most of your income and reduce expenditure, as well as apply for any welfare benefits to which you may be entitled.
Finally, once we have all the information we need, your application will be considered by our Grants Committee and we will advise you of their decision.
If you do not meet our eligibility criteria and we are not able to offer any help to you, we will do our best to let you know of any other organisation who may be able to assist you.
