Expense policies
Expenses and reimbursements can be approved for anyone in the UK who has lost their job or work as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and needs to pay a small bill or buy food/any other essential items. At this time, we are also open to those who have not lost work due to the pandemic. We can provide supermarket vouchers if needed (contact us if so). 

To get funds, click 'request grant' on our page. You will asked to fill in some information about yourself and your situation. Only your first name and a short description of what funds are needed for will be publicly visible on our page. Everything else will be seen only by admins. We will aim to distribute funds to everyone, but we cannot guarantee that every request will be fulfilled. It will depend on the funds that are available and the volume of need. We will let you know if we cannot fulfil your request for whatever reason.

You must give UK bank account details. Paypal requests cannot be fulfilled.

You can submit a request at any time, but please note that requests are approved by Accountable (our fiscal) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only, and the money will be in your account the following morning (ie Tuesday morning if you made your request on Monday or over the weekend, or Thursday morning if you made your request on Tuesday). If your request is urgent or you need the funds sooner, please send us an email or a DM on Twitter.

If you need to make an anonymous request, please use the name Mary Abrahams.

Please don't hesitate to send us an email if you have any difficulties.
