Who is eligible?

Visit the Clapham Relief Fund website to find out if your client lives in the area of benefit.

The charity does not give grants for day-to-day living expenses, to pay off debts or where funding is available from public sources, such as the local authority or DWP.

How to apply?

Applications must be submitted by a verifiable sponsor, such as social worker, a child support worker, housing officer, GP or charitable organisation.

If the application is successful, the grant will be paid to the sponsor. The sponsor will be responsible for monitoring how the grant is spent and ensuring that itemised receipts are given to the Clapham Relief Fund within two months of the grant being paid.

An application form can be downloaded from the Clapham Relief Fund website or by emailing

Applications are considered four times a year, usually in early March, June, September and December. The charity should receive the application at least ten days before the meeting.
