We make small grants to people in need living in Edinburgh.

We focus on situations where a little means a lot. Our grants usually help with essential living costs such as food, travel, and sanitary products. We prioritise people in the most difficult circumstances – including those sleeping rough, with no benefits in payment, or with no recourse to public funds.

Our defining feature is that we aim to make payment by bank transfer, directly to beneficiaries, within 24 hours of application. This allows us to respond quickly, preventing people from falling through the cracks when they are most in need.
