ABOUT GLASSPOOL

Our vision is of a society where everyone has the basics they need for a good life.

We are one of the few UK-wide charities providing grants support for people experiencing financial hardship, that has no restrictions on who we can help

We provide timely, small, one-off grants to individuals, couples and families for everyday items to help them cope when things get tough, equip them to manage better day-to-day and enable them to build a stronger future.

We invite applications from support agencies on behalf of the people they support, as we believe that by working with others we can provide greater support.

If you are supporting a woman please read the Glasspool – Smallwood partnership page of this website, as further support may be available.  

Please keep well,

The Team at Glasspool
