The charity GroceryAid has set up a Winter Heating Grant to help low-income households meet increasing costs this winter.
Grants of £150 per household are available to help those in the grocery industry get through the cold winter months.
To apply for the GroceryAid Winter Heating Grant, you must first check that you meet ALL the criteria:
- Currently employed in the grocery industry and have been working for the last six months
- In receipt of an income related benefit such as Universal Credit, Tax Credits or old-style benefits such as ESA
- Responsible for paying an energy bill (Gas/Electric/Oil)
- Savings and available balance of all accounts less than £4000
The Winter Heating Grant is a limited fund and will close once all the money has been allocated. If you are in need, you are being encouraged to apply early as GroceryAid will be unable to consider grants towards general heating costs after this time.
GroceryAid is a registered charity who provide emotional, practical and financial support for grocery workers. They have been supporting those in the grocery trade since 1857 and have a variety of grants available to help grocery workers who are experiencing hard times.
