Glasspool Charity Trust

Our vision is of a society where everyone has the basics they need for a good life.

We are one of the few UK-wide charities providing grants support for people experiencing financial hardship, that has no restrictions on who we can help

We provide timely, small, one-off grants to individuals, couples and families for everyday items to help them cope when things get tough, equip them to manage better day-to-day and enable them to build a stronger future.

We invite applications from support agencies on behalf of the people they support, as we believe that by working with others we can provide greater support.

Individuals are unable to apply directly.

We are able to accept new applications from 11am each Monday. Once we have received as many applications as we can potentially fund for the week, you will not be able to submit any new applications until 11am the following Monday. This will be a Tuesday if Monday is a bank holiday.

Please check GrantsPlus regularly to see if we are accepting new applications, as we aim to keep the time when we are not accepting new applications to a minimum.
