Things can happen in your life and you may need help paying for personal or household items that you can’t cover
South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation administer the Deakin and Withers fund and this supports single, divorced or widowed women over 40, living in hardship or facing financial difficulty. To apply you must be a member of a church which is a member of Churches Together. The grant funding can support a range of essential household items or utility bills. If you are successful the award is made by cheque, within six weeks of receiving your application.
Each grant application is assessed on its own merit and help offered depending on individual circumstances. Most of our awards are for around £500.
