Cost of Living grants are normally provided for an agreed timeframe, to enable the applicant to consider what other options might be available to enable them to support themselves in the longer term. Grants will normally be awarded due to extenuating circumstances, eg: sudden illness.

These grants can include help with:

  • Housing costs
  • Travel costs
  • Utility bills
  • Moving costs

If you have household goods urgently in need of replacement, we may be able to help provide these. e.g: fridges, washing machines, etc.

If your need is urgent please see the crisis grants page.

Read the full guidelines about cost of living grants.

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for further information about who and how the fund can help.
