What do you need help with?
We provide a range of welfare grants to help in times of financial need. These include grants for emergencies, transplant assessment, health and wellbeing, holidays and breaks, home care, education and funerals.
We offer support for applying for benefits like Personal Independent Payment, Disability Living Allowance and Universal Credit. Find out more about the benefits support we can provide.
