- We give grants to individuals who are currently living and have lived within the parish of Chippenham for at least 2 years.
- Our grants are for those residents on a means tested benefit or with a single household income of less than £16,000 or £30,000 for a joint household income. If your annual income exceeds this amount then we are unlikely to be able to help you.
- The charity gives grants where there is no other statutory or discretionary funding such as that given by the government and local authorities.
- Our grants to individuals include funding for white goods, furniture, food vouchers, debt, funeral costs, and mobility aids.
- We also give grants for anyone studying up to and including level 3 to help with educational costs. This may include equipment such as laptops, course fees and transport costs.
- Our other grant available to individuals is for enrichment purposes, to help with wellbeing, inclusion and confidence for those at risk of isolation and/or mental health issues. This should be for a group activity and may include sports tuition, music lessons and attending art/drama classes.
- Unfortunately, we cannot help with first degrees and masters; carpets and floor coverings; and funding of individual sports persons.
