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 to focus on essential daily living requests

Due to the high number of applications we are receiving, we are prioritising requests for cookers, fridges, washing machines etc. or beds/bedding and essential clothing.

This means that we are unable to fund requests for other items of furniture such as: sofas, wardrobes or table/chairs, except in cases where the applicant is experiencing severely poor physical or mental health or has complex needs.

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.
