How we can help
If you are working with individuals or families who are experiencing hardship, then we may be able to help. We provide essential items such as clothing, beds, furniture, medical and mobility equipment and, in emergencies, food to those in need.
Each year we help over 8,000 vulnerable people and children by working with organisations in the community to ensure that we get help to those who need it when they need it. Where there is a crisis or immediate need, for example cases of domestic violence or those experiencing homelessness, we are able to act quickly.
Please click here for a Charity Link information pack which contains all the information that you need to access help for your service users.
You can access our service by completing one of our application forms, either on-line or a paper form. Click this link to download and print one of our application forms or please click here to complete our on-line form.
Please remember to consult the guidelines before you complete each section, as the more comprehensive and accurate the information we have, the more likely it will be that we can help your service users.
Please note it is often hard to obtain grants for such items as carpets and other floor coverings, rent deposits and arrears, furniture outside of essential items, decorating, funeral costs, bankruptcy fees, nursing home fees, ongoing medical costs, travel and car deposits, holidays and foreign travel.
We aim to help within 20 days of receiving your application but if the need is urgent we may be able to help the same day, so please call us on: 0116 222 2200.
If you would like further information then please email email@example.com or call 0116 222 2200 or write to us at Charity Link, 20a Millstone Lane, Leicester LE1 5JN.
