These grants cover:
- Loss of earnings
- Rental arrears
- Urgent expenses
- Funeral costs
Crisis grants are available when there are unforeseen circumstances, such as an unexpected job loss. We are unable to pay off credit card debts. We can pay off rent or utility arrears; in these circumstances payments will be made to the third party supplier.
Grants are available up to a maximum of £3,000 per application.
