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.

"Lockdown has been brutal and  I’ve felt very isolated and alone. When I was told Glasspool was  going to give me a washer dryer I literally jumped for joy!  I know Glasspool tends to fund washing machines so  I was touched that Glasspool recognised that I live in a flat and that drying damp washing indoors would exacerbate my existing mould problem. They found the right solution for my situation"

Judith, who received a Glasspool grant during 2020/21
