St Giles & St George Alms Charity

Grants to help people in or around Bloomsbury on low income with essential household items, particularly those with physical/mental health issues or disabilities.

The areas which the charity covers are parts only of Bloomsbury, and Covent Garden in Camden, London (see charity website for map).

Grants are mostly to help with buying new or replacement household items that are broken or lacking.

Who is eligible?

  • People who live in or around Bloomsbury who need help with essential household items, particularly those with physical/mental health issues or disabilities.
  • The area of benefit does not match local authority boundaries.  It includes most of the Bloomsbury and Covent Garden areas in Camden, plus small parts of St James’s and West End wards in Westminster.  A map of the catchment area is available on the St Giles & St George Alms Charity website
  • You should also be on a low income, whether that is on benefits or in employment - you will need to provide proof.  We do not offer educational grants and are unlikely to fund holidays.

Please note: We do not offer educational grants and are unlikely to fund holidays.
