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.

GDPR 2018

From the 25th May under General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we will need fully informed and freely given consent from applicants (your client or service user) that we can hold their data for the purpose of assessing and processing applications for financial support. We will not be able to assess or process any application without their written consent. A consent form can be found here

You will need to print the consent form and ask the applicant to read the form and the Privacy Policy. If they consent for the organisations listed to hold their data, they will need to complete and sign the form. You will then need to scan and attach the signed form when creating an application on GrantsPlus. More information regarding how to attach the form to an application will be made available nearer the time. Please do not send the forms to us via email.
