Help to apply for grants
Check the guidance notes
If you need any help while filling in the forms, check any guidance notes the charity has given you. These usually give details of the information that you need to include or refer to, such as bank statements.
Ask the charitable fund what help is available
It is also worth asking the charitable funds you are applying to if they can give you any support, such as someone to help you complete the forms. Some charitable funds employ case workers who visit potential beneficiaries in their own home to offer support and assess their application for help. Others have a grants department or enquiry line that you can contact if you are unsure how to fill in the application.
Ask an intermediary for help
Any advisers, support workers or health/social care professionals (also known as intermediaries) you have contact with may also be able to help you
You can also use the Turn2us Find an Adviser tool to find local advisers who may be able to advise you further on your situation or help you to apply for grants.
