Cash for kids are offering grants to help children in households struggling to make ends meet.

HOUSEHOLDS with children struggling to make ends meet could be eligible for a grant from Cash for Kids.

In response to the crisis hitting so many families right now the organisation has launched its new Cost of Living Fund to provide emergency essentials that support the physical and mental well-being of children who are struggling.

These could include food, clothing and household energy costs, but they also consider anything that helps meet children's most basic needs.

Grants are £50 per child per household, and they aim to get the funds to families as soon as possible.

A total funding pot of £1.6 million available and applications will be welcomed so long as there is cash in the fund.

Cash for Kids work with grass-roots organisations that aim to make a difference to young lives, directly supporting families who often have nowhere else to go.
