Making an Application

Applications are only accepted from professional support workers and CAB advisors on behalf of their service users.

Although the VRF is essentially a church fund, the grants we make are intended for the whole community of need. There are no eligibility requirements on the basis of gender, age, origin, status, ethnic group, or faith.

As a crisis fund, we expect applications to the VRF to be a last resort. We want to avoid situations where we make a grant quickly but the money is not used immediately, so please don’t apply to us first simply because we are normally able to act quickly. Where support workers have been able to demonstrate that they have received or been promised funds from other sources, we have usually been sympathetic to requests to make a grant as part of a package.

Applications to the Vicar’s Relief Fund are managed through our online grant system.  We no longer accept applications via email or post.
