Expense policies

Newham households can claim up to £50 per calendar month by providing proof of address dated within the last 6 months and bank details.

The proof of address must be a photograph of a paper proof of address like a letter, statement or bill. The name on the bank account and on the proof of address must match.

If you're having trouble uploading your proof of address, please email it to [email protected].

If you can’t provide these details, contact the admins on [email protected] to discuss your circumstances.

After you have submitted an application it will be checked by an administrator, usually within 24 hours. We will approve your expense or contact you if there are any problems. Our fiscal host, the Social Change Nest, pays out on approved expenses every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, usually around 5pm.

We prioritize applications from people who are new to the fund. If you have received from the fund 4 or more times in the past, your application will be considered from the 22nd of the month.

We welcome applications made by support organisations on behalf of Newham households. Please see this guidance and contact us with any queries.
