Financial Support, Grants & Schemes
The rise in cost of living, fuel and energy bills has affected everyone, especially those with lower incomes. However, there are many companies who offer financial support, as well as monetary grants and funds.
TURN2US – Search for a grant
If you can’t claim welfare benefits because of your status in the UK, this doesn’t stop you from applying for a charitable fund. Turn2us allows you to search for a grant that you don’t have to pay back. Search for a grant or charitable fund here.
