Who is eligible?

The fund considers grants from people in need, hardship or distress provided that they have lived in the Borough of Hastings for at least three years.

Applications by individuals will normally be subjected to some form of means testing and should normally be supported by one of the following agencies and preferably in circumstances where the agency is working with the applicant or has direct knowledge of the applicant:

  • HARC
  • East Sussex County Council Social Services
  • Hastings and Rother Citizens Advice Bureau
  • Any school – for school uniforms and assistance towards educational visits

The Charity requires that other obvious sources of relief, e.g. social services, have been approached prior to submitting a grant application. 

Applications for grants to pay-off debts or to contribute to the cost of mini-buses are not permitted.
