Walsall Wood Charity

The Walsall Wood (former) Allotment Charity exists to relieve local people who are in need, hardship or distress.  This broad remit means that the Charity can consider requests for financial assistance for a wide variety of support so long as the benefit to the applicant can be demonstrated.  Typical awards are for clothing (including school uniforms) and footwear or household goods such as white goods and furniture.

How to apply?

Download an application form from the website: https://go.walsall.gov.uk/charities

Individuals should apply directly. A professional or family member can help with completing the application form, but the individual applying for a grant needs to sign the form. If the grant is for a child, the parent or guardian should complete the form.

Please consider submitting additional evidence that verifies your personal circumstances such as proof of income (for example wage slips, benefits letters or bank statements) or letters of support from professional people who are familiar with your case.  You do not have to provide this evidence but it may benefit your application if you choose to do so.

The Charity meets approximately six times a year.
