Our grants are not guaranteed. In the event that we are not the right charity for you, we will try to signpost you towards other charities who may be able to help.

We will aim to get back to you, normally by email, within two working weeks. If you have not heard from us within this timeframe, please check your junk mail as some emails do end up there.
