Grants are available for children and young people under 23 years of age, who are under the pastoral care of a local Presbyterian congregation, are on a low income and live in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

The Society considers applications on a case by case basis, and has helped single-parent families, families who have experienced bereavement or a relationship breakdown, or people who have served a prison sentence.

If you would like to further explore whether you may be eligible for financial help please contact the Minister of your local Presbyterian Church.
