Expense policies
Trans Aid Bristol are keen to support as many trans, non-binary and intersex people as possible in Bristol and its surrounding areas. We accept claims for all kinds of support, from living expenses (eg. food, bills, debt, etc.) to costs related to transition (eg. medications, transport to appointments, counselling, etc.). We currently have three types of grants available:
  1. General Assistance Grants: For day to day support to people in our community. These are capped at £30 for individual claims, up to £60 per month per person. This ceiling may change depending on demand and funds available.
  2. Emergency Grants: For financial emergencies ranging from large unexpected expenses to housing emergencies and unemployment. There is no maximum cap for this category. We may not always be able to pay out the full amount requested, but we do aim to ensure that no member of our community is left in a financial emergency. 
  3. Fundraiser Grants: For one-off donations to fundraisers up to £50. As Trans Aid Bristol grows, we may need to place a cap on how many fundraisers we can support in a given month. For now, we aim to support as many as possible.
When completing your expense request, please use one of the headings above ("General Assistance Grant", "Emergency Grant" or "Fundraiser Grant") in the title of the request to act as a broad descriptor of your expense.

Please also let us know how much you need in the "additional invoice information" box. You may also describe what you need this for (eg. "Food", "Medication", "Travel to/from appointment", etc.) in this box, though do not share anything confidential as the description will be visible on the expenses page. There is also the option to add a receipt/proof if you wish, though this is not required. If you need to tell us something private that you do not want shared publicly, please use the comments functionality as part of the expense claim to communicate confidentially with us.

We also have a fourth category of expense claims: TAB Running Costs. These are claimed by ourselves as organisers that go towards keeping Trans Aid Bristol operational. This will largely include venue hire for workshops and sports events, as well as website hosting.
