We have received a number of applications for our Large Organisational Grants this quarter which will be considered at the next Grants Committee Meeting in July.

In addition, we continue to receive a number of applications for grants to individuals and families. To give an idea of what these grants have been funding we have broken down some of the items that have been funded since the start of the year. We have awarded well over 100 individual grants since January. These have provided:

18 beds

12 fridge/freezers

12 general furniture items

11 carpeting/curtains

11 washing machines

9 cookers

9 sofas

4 laptops

Grants have also been awarded for play scheme places, clothing, children’s items, school uniform, passport costs and emergency living costs. Referrals have been made by over 20 partner organisations in and around our area of benefit.
