Make a Referral

We aim to help by providing grants to vulnerable people in the most equitable way with the help of our front-line partners who can be from the following: 

  • Support workers 
  • Housing / benefit advisors  
  • Mental health nurses 
  • Outreach workers 

We are willing to provide financial support up to a maximum of £250 to help alleviate financial difficulties such as: 

  • Eviction threat 
  • A debt relief order 
  • Payment toward rental deposit 
  • Payments to setup a Home (household items) 

We also provide payments for crisis relief for those in immediate need. 

In order to do this, we ask that only paid front-line workers apply via our online application form on behalf of the individual in need. 

We will endeavour to respond to each application within 24 hours of receipt, but it can take up to 3 days during busy periods.  

We also ask that proof of expenditure is provided to us within 4 weeks of receiving monies

If you’re working with or know someone who you feel could benefit from The Olive Trust’s help, you can go ahead and make a referral, if your agency is already registered with us.

If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough, please send an alert to Street Link

The details you provide are sent to the local authority or outreach service for the area in which you have seen the person, to help them find the individual and connect them to support.
