Request Details

Good evening, 

I have very recently experienced a Sanction on my Universal credit payment in which I am stressfully trying get lifted,
A payment of £243 of month benefits;
I am unemployed and suffering with an unacknowledged disability.

I remembered your support from before 
Really appreciated your help as just like then I am struggling, stressed and my health is deteriorating trying to resolve this issue and this doesn’t help when I suffer from severe eczema & anxiety disorder.
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. 

Please can the Solidarity fund help me with £30-£50 to go towards my food, utilities, travel and much more. Please & thank you

Kind regards 

Shaun Graham

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:
