Getting help for you, a friend, or family member

Elizabeth Finn Care gives money to help people who have less than £4,000 in savings and, lacking enough household income, manage a bare hand-to-mouth existence.

By giving just that little bit more money beyond State Benefit provision, Elizabeth Finn Care enables people to:

  • pay for the things they vitally need
  • take charge of their lives once more, and
  • plan for a future

We help people whose former careers have been interrupted or ended through circumstances beyond their control: physical or mental illness, redundancy, family breakdown, or those struggling on low income in retirement.

Asking for help isn't easy. There are some 13.5 million men, women and children in the UK who are living at or near the poverty line. Read through unsure if we can help to learn if we can support you.

Read our eligibility guidelines to learn if we can help. If you are in any doubt, please call us on 020 8834 9200 during office hours.

If you would like to take the first steps to getting help go straight to enquire about support.

For a downloadable copy of our eligibility guidelines, which include an application form for support, please click on Grants for People in Need. This form is also available for downloading in the following languages: Welsh, Chinese, Gujarati, Punjabi, Urdu and Bengali.

In many cases, people who apply to us have needs greater than we can meet including needs for specialist advice and detailed information. In these cases we will work together with other charities to do as much as we can to help.

Please visit our Turn2us service for resources and links to other charities and organisations that can help.
