Food & Clothing Grants

 

Haddington & District Community Council has been successful in securing funding to support local families who are experiencing difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have set up the HCC Food Voucher and Clothing Grant scheme for local Families.

Referrals to these grants should be made by either a professional or agency working with an individual or family who are experiencing financial difficulties and need a helping hand to purchase food shopping and or clothing.

The cash grant cannot be used to purchase alcohol or tobacco, all receipts must be returned to the person who has made the referral.

The person making the referral should specify how much they think the individual/family needs to assist them at this time.

The H&DCC will then review the application, decide how much is to be awarded as a grant, and arrange for the person making the referral to be given the cash grant.  These grants are open to everyone in the Haddington and Lammermuir ward and will be awarded as long as we have the funds.  If anyone requires any further information please email  all@haddingtoncc.org.uk
