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.

"When I was told Glasspool was providing me with a washing machine I couldn't believe it. It has made such a difference to me and made my life easier"

Peter, who received a Glasspool grant in 2019
