The Elizabeth Finn Fund has been giving direct grants and support for over a century to people living in financial difficulty who have a professional background and meet our grant-giving criteria.
We give grants to people who hold or have formerly held occupations requiring a certain level of responsibility and education, or whose partners have done so. We can award grants to people from over 120 different professions whose work history includes employment in a role which requires a degree; NVQ level 4 or above; or equivalent.
The grants we give help make a difference to an individual or family’s life and improve their living conditions.
I was very emotional because I didn’t expect that kind of help. The grant allowed us to get back on our feet, pay off the critical priority bills and allowed me time to sort things out so we could have a peaceful existence.
