While the government’s measures will help many in time, we aim to alleviate some of the immediate financial pressures of those most in need.
The Covid-19 Crisis Fund has been set up to support people who have lost their income as a result of the coronavirus (Covid19) and to meet their immediate basic household expenses.
What can we help with?
Please note that we are unable to replace your income. We are able to provide a one-off crisis grant of £500 per household towards essential living expenses (food, bills etc).
Who is the fund for?
We can only help those who are in immediate financial difficulty due to the coronavirus. You will need to satisfy all of the following criteria:
- You can clearly demonstrate a loss of income due to Covid-19 (evidence will be required showing at least a 50% reduction in earnings, we can accept bank statements, letter from employer outlining change in employment)
- You are a resident of the UK/Republic of Ireland
- You are not currently in further or higher education
- You are over 18
- You have less than £1K savings (single person) or less than £2K savings (couple/family)
Please note that if you have received a Turn2us grant in the last six months we will be unable to assist you.
What happens if I do not meet your criteria?
Please do not make an application to our crisis fund if you do not meet the above criteria. Instead, use the following link to find other charities or organisations that may be able to assist you: https://grants-search.turn2us.org.uk/
