    Aberlour’s Urgent Assistance Fund can provide immediate relief to families with children (aged 21 and under) who are suffering extreme hardship. Families who are struggling to provide food, heating and clothing for their children.

    The fund provides urgent assistance for essential items. This support is usually via cash grants to assist with a range of needs, such as food, utilities, clothing, bedding, appliance repairs, replacement of appliances that have failed, or other essentials. They do not make awards for carpets, floor coverings or electronic devices.

    Applications must be endorsed and submitted by a sponsor, acting in their professional capacity. Eligible sponsors include social workers, health care professionals, teachers, clergy and third sector organisations. Applications from individuals cannot be accepted.

    Available funds are limited and all applications will be evaluated against evidence of a family’s financial status. If you receive an award from the Urgent Assistance Fund you cannot re-apply for a period of one year or in some instances up to two years.

    To qualify for cash grants from the Trust:

    • There must be a child in the family who is 21 or under
    • That child must be suffering extreme hardship
    • Grants are made at the discretion of the Trust
    • A sponsor must submit a fully completed application via our web application form link below. If applications are incomplete, they may be rejected
