If you’re struggling you may be entitled to financial support.
Our non-repayable one-off grants are designed to help those experiencing an unexpected emergency, a change in circumstances or a sudden gap in income.
You can apply for a financial grant if:
- You are currently working in the grocery industry and can evidence a minimum of one year’s service or more
- You are no longer working in the grocery industry, but previously worked in it for five years or more*
- Household net income and savings meet GroceryAid’s financial criteria
- If you have been awarded a grant from GroceryAid in the last 12 months, we are unable to consider additional financial support unless you can evidence a significant change to your household income. Please contact the Welfare Team on firstname.lastname@example.org before reapplying to discuss whether the change means you could be considered for another grant.
*The time worked doesn’t have to be continuous and can be with multiple companies.
