Applications From Individuals
St Andrew Holborn is the administrative base for a number of charities. Two of them – St Andrew Holborn & Stafford’s Charity and Bromfield’s Educational Foundation – together make grants annually totalling around £500,000 to support individuals in need and organisations that support them. Grants are awarded on the basis of need and irrespective of background or religious belief.
Who can apply?
People on low income who are living within the area of benefit (click here to check the map before applying).
For educational applications you will need to have been resident in the area of benefit for 2 years. Please note, grants cannot be considered for second degrees or post graduate studies.
What can I apply for?
Most grants are for essential household items such as kitchen appliances, beds & furniture, bedding, school uniform and clothing. Requests for a contribution towards flooring/carpet are considered on an exceptional basis only. Typically grants issued for educational reasons are for computers, books, travel, and general maintenance.
What can't I apply for?
We are unable to consider applications for debt relief, rent or utility arrears, credit card debt, rental deposits, holidays, removal costs, school fees or for goods & services already bought.
