The Royal British Legion has launched the Cost of Living Grants Programme to assist people who need help in a quick and easy way with everyday essentials such as kitchen appliances, clothes, and energy costs.
This programme is open to anyone in the Armed Forces community who is eligible for our support from the Royal British Legion and who is struggling to pay for items and services they need. If you want to check if you are eligible you can find out here: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-support/who-we-help
The Everyday Needs Grant could provide up to £2,400 a year in £200 monthly instalments and the successful applicants would receive:
- Vouchers to top-up gas or electricity prepayment meters
- A virtual credit card you use to pay utility bills (the cards are restricted to this use)
- Vouchers for food, clothing or household items
- Replacement white goods
