  • Families affected by domestic violence and abuse
  • Parents or children with a range of health problems

Vicars Relief Fund
The Vicar's Relief Fund supports people who are at risk of being made homeless, are homeless or vulnerable, or have experience of being homeless and are trying to establish or maintain a tenancy. Where arrears have happened that may put someone at risk of becoming homeless, a grant from the VRF cay remove the threat of eviction. Where someone who is in temporary accommodation needs help putting together a deposit for a more permanent home, a VRF grant can help that happen.

The VRF also makes grants for items such as beds and other household items such as cookers and fridges. The average grant is around £200.  On average over the past 12 months, the VRF has been able to make grants within 2 days of receiving a request. Click here for further information.
