There is still money and support out there for individuals

The difficult task is finding out how to access it.

It is not an easy time to be working with individuals in need

In a context of policy changes and cutbacks to welfare support, local government provision and education, it is not an easy time to be working with individuals in need. It is increasingly important that charities are in the know about what provision is available from within the sector, and can signpost their beneficiaries to sources of help when they fall through the net or are simply below the radar regarding benefits.

The good news is…

… that there is still money and support out there for individuals in all kinds of circumstances – the difficult task is finding out how to access it.

That’s where Grants for Individuals, DSC’s subscription website for those working in the fields of welfare or education, is the ideal resource, bringing together information about thousands of grant-making charities across the UK, with a handy search facility to find support tailored to the circumstances of each individual where that support is available. Each entry includes details such as the type of support, eligibility criteria and how to apply, all in one place, so no time is wasted in finding the essential information.

The grants available are as diverse as the individuals in need

There are often small, local funders who have been assisting local residents with education costs, Christmas presents or household items or bills for a century or more. There are also large, nationwide grant-makers supporting people with specific health conditions or disabilities, providing equipment for young people to nurture their talents in educational or extra-curricular activities, or simply helping a family to put food on the table.

There is a huge variety of grant-makers looking for applicants, and, as charities working on the frontline of welfare or education know so well, there are plenty of beneficiaries in need of help or support. The Grants for Individuals website enables charities to connect people with resources, bridging the gaps between the support available and those in need.
