Welfare / Hardship Funds
The HIV Support team are aware of the financial hardship and poverty many people with HIV face. This can have a detrimental effect on health and well-being.
Therefore the Brunswick Centre raises money and receives donations for its Welfare Fund. Small grants can be accessed by service users who are experiencing financial hardship and poverty who live in Calderdale and Kirklees. These grants are typically small and are not designed to be long term support but to assist service users in the short term. Whilst this is not a crisis fund, emergency payments can be made to service users who are experiencing unexpected and sudden financial hardship.
Staff are also skilled in accessing external hardship funds for individual service users and can obtain funding for a variety of items.
The Brunswick Centre welcomes donations to its Welfare Fund. If you are interested in making a donation and/or fundraising for the charity please get in touch with us.
