Glasspool Charity Trust has been making a meaningful difference to the lives of individuals and families facing financial difficulties since 1939.

We focus on alleviating immediate financial pressures through grants, to help people across the UK navigate challenging times with dignity and a renewed sense of hope.


Our sole grants programme the Flexible Frontline Fund was launched April 2024. It enables frontline organisations that provide whole-person support to access and distribute grant funds to their service users and clients.

The grant funding can be used for a range of household goods and services; and by offering flexibility, Glasspool and frontline organisations make a real-time impact on the lives of individuals, couples and families across the UK.

During 2023 we undertook a comprehensive recruitment process to select our frontline partners for this fund. This recruitment process is now closed. We do not anticipate entering into a new recruitment round before 2027.

News and Updates

Our new grants programme the Flexible Frontline Fund is now live.

Grants from this fund are exclusively reserved for the service users or clients of chosen frontline partner organisations. If you are an individual or support worker seeking grant support, please note that frontline partner organisations can only assist individuals who meet their eligibility criteria for whole-person support and only if they have the capacity to accept new service users or clients. These organisations retain full discretion in deciding whether to accept an individual for grant and other support.
