Support Allowance and/or seasonal gifts are be made by the Charity to Beneficiaries. These payments are assessed on a financial basis and a banding framework is used.
These grants may be paid to eligible Beneficiary whilst in full time education to statutory school leaving age, or up to the end of the school year in which they turn 19 years of age.
Weekly Support Allowance
- May be payable to Beneficiaries whilst in education, up to the end of the school year in which they turn 19.
- The amount payable will be dependent upon household income and the weekly support allowance band which then applies.
- Household expenditure and capital assets will not be taken into account in the calculation of a weekly support allowance.
- Weekly allowances and grants will be back dated to the date of the event giving rise to the application.
The money we receive from the Charity makes a huge difference to our lives. Amelia would not be able to have ballet or swimming lessons without these payments.
A seasonal gift will be awarded twice yearly in the summer and at Christmas, to all Beneficiaries. The values of the seasonal gifts will be reviewed on a three yearly basis.
