British Red Cross is looking for help to find the people in greatest need of support from their Hardship Fund.

The Hardship Fund was created by the British Red Cross with partner Aviva and the Aviva Foundation to help those most financially impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

The fund provides short-term financial help for people who can’t afford the essentials:

  • Food and toiletries
  • Somewhere safe to sleep
  • Access to a telephone and the internet
  • Fuel to keep the lights on, cook or stay warm

British Red Cross works with a network of organisations to reach the people in greatest need. The fund can help people who can’t afford the essentials because they have no income or welfare support or delays to accessing income or welfare support. They are unable to help anyone in employment or already receiving financial support from statutory or voluntary services.
