Watch: Filshill Talk GroceryAid

See the difference our support is making to colleagues’ lives

"I applied for a Cost of Living grant when my financial worries were causing me to become physically unwell. I had given up all hope of getting out of this black hole but the grant I received enabled me to get back on track."

"The Grants Officer I spoke to was amazing, non-judgement, excellent at listening and understanding your situation without being overpowering or making you feel like you are being questions. The grant and the additional support I received has taken me from being under incredible stress and worry to feeling safe and secure. Thank you. "

"I explained my financial situation and was given information of a number of different ways GroceryAid could help. It has really helped my mental wellbeing and I feel able to cope with future issues I might face."

"I didn’t expect much when I applied, but when I received a phone call from my Grant Officer they explained how they could support me and I was really surprised I must admit. My application was successful and the grant received will be a big help to my family whilst we juggle caring for our disabled children."

"I thought I couldn’t get help as I have a partner who works but GroceryAid take all of your finances into consideration. The support has helped to take a weight off my mind."

"The Grant Officer who dealt with my application was so helpful and patient, I felt she genuinely wanted to find the best way to help me. I was awarded a grant towards my rent arrears and I’m so grateful I can now stay in my home."

“A massive thank you for the help we received during a devastating time in our life.“

“I was very grateful for a grant which helped immensely with my situation as l had been off work longer than expected which left me in financial difficulty. Thank you once again”

"Just like to say a big thank you. Really don't know what I would have done without your aid. Allowing me to spend precious time with my daughter where I would have had to return to work. Thank you, Thank you"
