What happens if I apply for help when funds are low?

by on February 23, 2017

IF YOU APPLY FOR HELP when funds are low we will always do our best to help you from the funds we have available. If we reach the point where we have no funds left, we will add you to a waiting list then contact you when we do have funds available.

When we set up 5 Quid for Life we deliberately set aside £1,000 in a reserve fund. When we dip into that reserve fund we will automatically reduce our maximum grant from £200 to £100 to ensure that we can help as many people as possible.

We currently expect to start using our reserve fund within the next couple of weeks, if not sooner.

How you can help

If you can, please give; if you can’t give, please share. Here’s a reminder of our backstory, as published in One in Four magazine back in 2011: please feel free to share it. Fivers may have changed since then but we still need them — and every one that you give to us, we give to someone else who needs it. Thank you.
