Grants Spotlight: NewstrAid
Founded in 1839, NewstrAid helps people who are, or have been, employed in the selling and distribution of newspapers and magazines in the UK and who have fallen on hard times. This includes their immediate family and dependants who are in need, hardship or distress.
As well as grants and financial support, the charity provides a full range of advice and information services including access to an anxiety support helpline. Its team of volunteers also make sure that NewstrAid's beneficiaries receive the emotional support they require via home visits.
