All applications must be made by a registered referrer who is part of an organisation that is supporting the family or young person and capable of assessing their needs. The referrer’s organisation should also be able to administer and supervise the grant on our behalf.

The grant is aimed at supporting children and young people up to and including the age of 17 who are experiencing a crisis or emergency and live in the UK. We cannot provide aid to those leaving care who have access to separate, specific statutory provision or children and young people who do not meet the residence criteria as defined by the programme.

We aim to process applications within 10 working days. Please only contact us for an update if absolutely necessary to prevent delays.

    We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
