Vicar’s Relief Fund
The VRF provides small crisis grants of up to £350 to support people who are at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness or vulnerable housing, to establish and maintain their tenancies. Types of applications include funding to secure accommodation and to clear rent arrears following an eviction notice.
We only accept applications from paid frontline workers providing support to people who are experiencing homelessness or vulnerable housing.
We will provide grants for:
Accessing accommodation – Rent deposits, rent in advance, admin fees, ID, or temporary accommodation costs.
Preventing eviction – Rent arrears, service charge arrears, Debt Relief Orders and bankruptcy fees or money to pay for a hoarding clean up.
Setting up home – Household goods or moving costs.

The Vicar’s Relief Fund is funded through the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal with St Martin-in-the-Fields. Watch Revd Dr Sam Wells talking about our work below.
