Bristol Charities continues to operate during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although our Head Office is shut and most of our Head Office staff are working from home, you can contact us by email or by phone on our Head Office phone number 0117 930 0301. We continue to run our Almshouses and Extra Care scheme, with staff on site. Our Grants Programme is running, please keep checking our website for details of when we are accepting applications for Grants. Although our Community Development for Older People Projects remain on hold for now, we hope to start activities again soon when it is safe to do so.

Bristol Charities is committed to working to provide support to people and communities throughout these complicated and taxing times.

I just wanted to thank you for the grant you have kindly awarded to my applicant. This has meant so much to him and his family.

Your grant has paid for his Year 6 residential camping trip, which he is really looking forward to. It has also given us the opportunity to purchase items he will need for his week away. 

The week away with his peers; camping in tents, participating in water sports, circus skills, team building, barbecues on the beach and a disco, will give him such wonderful and happy memories. 

Without your grant he would have not been able to go and, as a young carer, he truly deserves this wonderful experience. 

I cannot thank you enough for your kindness.

How to Apply & Furniture/White Goods Catalogs

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Please note we will now be able to process furniture and flooring grant applications from Friday 22nd May onwards.

If you received a grant offer letter for a furniture item or flooring before this date, then please get in touch now so that we can process your order. Please note there may be a lead time of 2-3 weeks with certain items.

We will continue to process all white goods grant applications as normal.

How to Apply:

As we are unable to award a grant directly to an applicant, a sponsor from a professional background must first be nominated to apply on the applicant's behalf. This can be a social worker, support worker, housing officer or a healthcare professional etc. (If you are a sponsor please see the "Registering as an approved sponsor" section underneath the Grants heading)

Once your chosen sponsor has been nominated and approved by us, they will receive an online application form that your sponsor will need to complete on your behalf. Once the application has been submitted, we will inform you of the outcome by post.

If you have been successful, the grant offer letter will ask you to select your item from the catalogues below. Once you have confirmed your item, the supplier will be in contact to arrange delivery of your item.

If your grant has been successful for flooring, we will pass your details to Kustom Floors & Furnishings, who will attend to measure up and bring samples along with them for you to choose from.
