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 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 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.

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.
