Financial Assistance

If you’re struggling you may be entitled to financial support.


Financial Grants

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 the last six months employment with the same company.
  • You are no longer working in the grocery industry, but previously worked in it for five years or more (the time worked doesn’t have to be continuous and can be with multiple companies)
  • 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 before reapplying to discuss whether the change means you could be considered for another grant.

Foodservice wholesaler support

As a result of challenges faced by the hospitality sector, GroceryAid recognises foodservice wholesale colleagues may need support as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. To provide support, GroceryAid has ringfenced a fund to assist wholesale colleagues

You must be able to evidence a reduction in income due to Covid-19.
