OUR ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA are very simple: we provide crisis financial support for people in the UK with mental health difficulties who:
- have lost their benefits
- or are not able to apply for benefit
- or have been notified that they are going to lose their benefits
If you meet those criteria, please contact us and, if appropriate, we will then ask you to complete an online application form or, if you prefer, send you a form in the post. Please note that support is currently limited to a maximum of £200 per application and is normally restricted to two payments in any 12 month period. All payments are subject to available funds.
Please read this post for details on how we make our decisions and how you can help make that process easier — and ultimately faster — both for us and for you: Decisions, decisions: how we make them (and how you can make them easier for us)
