Information about Grants


Data Protection Act: The information you provide will be input into our grant management system. It will only be used to enable a decision to be made about whether a grant may be approved to your organisation

1. Applications for financial assistance to individuals in need can only be accepted from a post holder in local authority, NHS or Voluntary Sector Agencies as approved by ELTF. Only one application on behalf of an individual will be considered in a twelve-month period.

2. 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

3. Applications will normally be processed on a continuous basis, receipt of application is sent automatically by the grant management system. Payments cannot be made direct to an individual, only to the applicant agency by the BACS, so bank account details are required to be entered on the application.

4. An acknowledgement form is forwarded with the notification of grant. This form should be returned with receipts for the items purchased within four weeks of receiving the grant. Any unpaid or unused portion of grant should be returned to ELTF within a two-month period of receipt by the agency, otherwise future applications may not be considered.

5. The limits for spending are: Child clothing £50 per child; Adult clothing £75 per adult; Bedding up to £100.
