Expense policies

The Arthurs Hill Solidarity Fund aims to redistribute funds within Arthurs Hill. We recognise there are big differences in financial security across Arthurs Hill, Newcastle and the UK more broadly, and that some people are affected significantly more than others by the pandemic and its consequences. We also recognise that forms of support available through state services and charities can discriminate against certain groups and can be based in conditions which make it very hard for certain people to claim, or can lead to feelings of shame.

To counter this, we do not require any form of evidence from individuals who wish to request money from the Arthurs Hill Solidarity Fund. There is no judgment or requirement to evidence how the money is spent. People can request up to £30 at once from the fund (to be reviewed depending on donations). As there has been such high demand, for now people can apply for a grant once a month. When funds are low we'll prioritise new applications and set up a waiting list for repeat applications.

If you would like to request money from the fund you can apply directly by going to 'submit expense', selecting 'reimbursement' and providing your name and the initial of your surname and uploading a proof of address. The address will not show publicly. If you are unhoused and do not have a postcode or bank account, please get in touch - this is not a barrier to accessing the fund. You can email [email protected], or call 0191 6911 363 (leave a voicemail and we'll get back to you.
