Crisis Fund, St Martin in the Fields Vicar's Relief Fund
An application for a grant can only be made by a sponsor or agency organisation, working to alleviate, and prevent homelessness, on behalf of the people they are supporting.
We are working in partnership with St Martin in the Fields Vicar’s Relief Fund to distribute these funds. We can only offer one grant per household within a 12-month period. Please do not submit multiple applications for your client and their partners/family members.
Applications will be considered for those who:
are currently at risk of imminent street homelessness due to the accumulation of rent arrears or the repossession of rented property
are currently experiencing street homelessness or residing in supported accommodation and need assistance in helping to clear historic rent arrears before being considered for rehousing
are currently experiencing street homelessness or residing in temporary accommodation and need assistance in gathering a deposit, rent in advance and/or agency fees towards securing new accommodation
after a period of homelessness, have recently secured new accommodation and need help setting up their new home with the purchase of either a cooker, fridge-freezer, beds, bedding and/or carpeting or after a period of homelessness, have recently secured new accommodation and need help with their removal costs.
The maximum award available is £250.00
Please Note: If successful, within two months of the award being made we will require a copy of the original receipt from the item purchased. Failure to do so will result in the sponsor agency not being able to re-apply for funding and a request for the awarded funds to be sent back for redistribution.
Examples of Grants
Newly launched funds and therefore no examples of awards are available.
We aim to process applications from start to finish within 10 working days, if not sooner.
