Fund for Human Need

The Fund for Human Need is a small Methodist-affiliated grant making charity established to relieve poverty and hunger. 

Grants are made, irrespective of faith, ethnic origin or social group, to individuals in the UK, most of whom are refugees, asylum seekers or homeless, and to those in other kinds of personal distress.

Who is eligible?

The Fund makes about 25 one-off grants each month to individuals, usually to a maximum of £120. Priority is given to those who are destitute or have no income or benefits, to those who are particularly vulnerable, and to those where a small grant will make a major difference.

Grants are NOT made:

  • to cover debt,
  • to pay scholarships, university or college fees,
  • to individuals living outside the UK, or for projects run by other charities, except for a small number of projects in other parts of the world from funds raised for those particular projects.
