Applications may be for any relevant and urgent need except for large electrical items, cookers, fridges, student fees or equipment, repayment of debt of any type, holidays anywhere except in special circumstances, e.g. where a holiday is arranged by a recognised charity and is within the UK. Priority will be given to applications where there is serious illness of the individual or in the family, which should be stated. Grants are normally under £200
