Request Details
Good evening, 

I am currently experiencing many financial issues, which I am not able to resolve while being on Universal Credits £243 monthly benefits; as well, I am also unemployed and suffer with unacknowledged disabilities. 

I have just discovered your organisation, which helps struggling individuals like myself, afford to pay bills, clothes, and purchase household cleaning items etc. 

I am unfortunately suffering the same issues as many other people, with the rising costs of energy and groceries; which has now put me in a terribly grave position.

I also suffer with untreatable skin disorders, which affects my mobility, motivation; and going out can cause me terrible anxiety.

Please could the solidarity fund help me with £100? Or £50, as it says on the webpage. This would go towards my fuel bills, household cleaning products, clothes, groceries and much more; thank you. 

Kind regards,


Shaun Graham
£30.00 GBP

Total amount £30.00 GBP

Expense policies

Brent Solidarity Fund is no longer open for applications or for donations from November 2022

The admin team is in the process of winding down Brent Solidarity Fund, as we are not able to keep organising the fund ourselves and we have not been able to find a new administrative team able to keep it open on the same open basis. If you are struggling financially and live in Brent, we recommend that you get in touch with Advice for Renters, who may be able to help:


How do I get paid from a Collective?
Submit an expense and provide your payment information.
How are expenses approved?
Collective admins are notified when an expense is submitted, and they can approve or reject it.
Is my private data made public?
No. Only the expense amount and description are public. Attachments, payment info, emails and addresses are only visible to you and the admins.
When will I get paid?
Payments are processed by the Collective's Fiscal Host, the organization that hold funds on their behalf. Many Fiscal Hosts pay expenses weekly, but each one is different.
Why do you need my legal name?
The display name is public and the legal name is private, appearing on receipts, invoices, and other official documentation used for tax and accounting purposes.
