Grant Policy

Our group checks claim submissions twice a week, we will aim to get back to you within three working days. 

We accept claims for the cost of medications, food, bills, transport to appointments, counselling and anything related to your transition at a maximum of £60 per claim under our General Assistance Grant scheme. We can also help cover bills, and other rising living costs. We help cover large cost emergencies such as urgent bills, rent and deposits for housing under our Emergency Funds Grant scheme. These grants are assessed on a case to case basis, and we may not be able to cover the whole cost. Our first priority will be costs associated with physiological needs, e.g. food, bills, housing, things you need to live. We don’t consider grants for pet related costs, there are alternative pet-orientated and pet-specific resources available elsewhere.

We may also ask for some form of identity verification, this may include social media pages or a timestamped selfie.
