ABOUT GLASSPOOL

Our vision is of a society where people in need receive sufficient support to over-come hardship.

We are one of the few national charities making grants to individuals which has no restrictions on the type of beneficiary we can support.

We provide timely, small, one-off grants to individuals and families in need of financial support for everyday items to help them set up or remain in their home; improve their well-being and in some cases we provide grants to support training to enable applicants to take up an offer of employment.

We invite applications from referral agencies on behalf of individuals as we believe that by working with others we can provide greater support.

News and Updates

Glasspool and Newby Trust partnership

We are delighted to announce our partnership with The Newby Trust (the Trust).

From July 2019 to June 2020, we will be administering the Trust’s small grants programme (£50,000) allocating grants for individuals in need in accordance with the Trust’s criteria.  

This means a support worker will only need to make one application to Glasspool and, if the application is successful, Glasspool may award a grant from its own fund and a grant from the Trust.

Both organisations hope this will enable clients to receive extra support more quickly, and make it easier for support workers to help their clients, by reducing the number of applications they need to make.

New White Goods Supplier & Essential Consent Form Update

We are pleased to announce that from 4th April 2019 until further notice we will be working with AO Retail Limited, who will be fulfilling our orders for white goods. As a result of this change we must have our new consent form, which now names AO as our white goods supplier, completed to ensure we are GDPR compliant.

Registered Support Workers can download the new form via our grants management system. Support Workers requiring any assistance should call the Grants Team on 0203 141 3161 (Mon to Fri – 9:30 to 12:30).

Due to GDPR we will not be able to accept any previous version of the consent form.
