Trustees meet in December each year to consider applications for grants for those in need, but applications can be made in an emergency at any time during the year. When making grants, the trustees will be influenced by the amount of money available and their assessment of the need.
Help can be given towards the cost of a wide range of purposes for people of any age who live in the village of Weedon and are in NEED of financial help provided that it is not for purposes which are already covered by the state. Some examples are clothes, additional help in the home above that provided for people who are aged or infirm, a contribution toward the cost of electricity, heating or TV licence. Friends or relatives may make applications on behalf of the sick or aged who may not feel able to make an application themselves.
Application forms may be downloaded from this site or obtained from the Clerk and any of the Trustees.
