With the Vicar’s Relief Fund, you provide emergency financial support so that people in vulnerable situations can find – and keep – a safe place to live.
Designed to prevent someone from losing their homes or to help them find a new one, these grants can transform a person’s circumstances within a matter of days. Because the inability to pay a small debt or rental deposit shouldn’t prevent someone from having a safe place to live.
That’s why VRF grants are issued quickly and efficiently via experienced support workers. Grants for preventing eviction are awarded up to a value of £350, and those for accessing accommodation are awarded up to £500. This is done via experienced support workers who work closely with those experiencing homelessness.
You can find some numbers for last year in our impact report.
