£5,000 grant to support Glow customers through the cost-of-living crisis

We’re excited to share that we’ll be providing an extra layer of support to individuals and families at our Staffordshire Moorlands refuge over the next year thanks to a £5,000 cost-of-living support grant.

The money, awarded to our refuge by The Community Foundation for Staffordshire, will help us further support families with anything related to the rising cost-of-living. 

This includes financial support while individuals and families wait to secure their benefits, help with rent payments to maintain housing, clothing, such as school uniforms, fresh food and transport to and from important appointments. 

Service Manager Nicola leads the team at our Staffordshire Moorlands refuge and says this money will ‘make such a difference’ to customers. 

We feel privileged and very lucky to have been awarded this grant from The Community Foundation,” said Nicola. 

We’re all feeling the pinch of the cost-of-living crisis, and for the people that we support it’s no different. By having this money for the next year, we can support those living in refuge with food, transport, clothing and bill and rent payments.”

Nicola says that the money will also help to provide ‘normality and security’ for people moving into refuge.

She explained: “Many customers come to us from out of the local area, so that means a brand-new school for the children. This money will help us support families to buy school uniforms so their little ones can feel included and able to settle in well.

“We’ll also use the grant to secure food items from an individual or family’s home culture. This can’t always be accessed from our local foodbanks but goes a long way to make them feel respected and included in their new home.

“The whole refuge team would like to say a huge thank you to the Community Foundation for the money. It will make such a difference to the people that we support and we are very grateful.”

Head of Programmes at The Community Foundation for Staffordshire, Leanne Macpherson, said: “Glow is a fantastic charity that listens to their communities needs and always delivers impactful projects.

“The Community Foundation for Staffordshire were thrilled to be able to support them through our programmes and we very much look forward to working with them again in the future.”
