Trustees are currently undertaking a full review of the Trust as agreed at their March 2021 meeting.

No new applications will be considered until this review has been completed.

Watch this space for updates.

The Charity was established to provide assistance to residents of Swaffham who at times find themselves in need of help.

WHY DO I NEED HELP? Life can bring unexpected difficulties, which can cause real distress to people who have always considered themselves to be independent and self-sufficient. This might be because of any number of things, actions or circumstance such as:

losing your job / becoming disabled or too ill to work / attempting to stay in your own home rather than go into hospital or a residential home / kitchen appliances breaking down / savings are too little to meet replacements / being re-housed but have no furniture or household equipment / budget does not run to the uniforms the local school requires / returning to work after a long gap with no savings to buy clothes etc / re-entering education but do not have money for the books

These are just a few examples of the difficult situations people can find themselves in.

Please complete an application and return this to the office. Your completed application will be added to the agenda for the next available Relief in Need meeting and you will be contacted shortly thereafter with their decision.

The Charity meets six times a year to look at applications for help. Once your application has been received it will be considered at the next meeting.

The meetings will take place during January, March, May, July, September and November.
