Family Action’s Welfare Grants

Family Action’s Welfare Grants programme primarily provides grants for essential personal and household needs to assist families and individuals with low incomes, particularly those living on benefits.

In addition to living on a low income and having right of residency in the UK welfare grant applicants must fall into one or more of the following “priority areas” listed below to be eligible to apply for a grant.

Current areas of funding

  • Older People: Support to promote independence; improve the quality of life and isolation for those aged 60 and over.
  • Disability/Sickness: Support to pay for:
    • disability aids that will benefit the applicant in their home. Please note, we do not fund ordinary personal and household needs under this category such as cookers or bedding unless a clear case is made that they have to be specially adapted to meet the applicants needs and we may require additional information before a grant is made to support the application.
    • items required (not preferred) by the assessment to allow discharge from hospital to home that cannot be provided by NHS or Social Care. Please note we will only consider applications received from NHS Trusts or Social Services under this category. An explanation of why they are needed and why they are not provided by NHS or Social Care needs to be provided on the application form.

All applications must be made on-line by a suitable referring agency, e.g. a charity that provides health or social care. Average grant size: £200.
