Friends of the Elderly grants

If you live in England or Wales, are of state retirement age and are living on a low income, get in touch as our grants could help. We currently have three types of grants available:

  1. Home essentials – to cover the cost of replacing everyday items, small home repairs and mobility adaptations.
  2. Digital connection – can be used towards the cost of equipment, such as tablets and smartphones, as well as broadband costs.
  3. Financial support – to help with unexpected bills and large costs, such as utility bills, funeral costs or moving fees.

How can I apply?

Applications need to be made through a referring agent. This can be someone working in local health or social care teams, the Citizens Advice, or other charities and community groups. Please call us if you aren’t sure if you are eligible.

For further information and to find out if you are eligible please take a look at their website here
