Twice Yearly Grants to Older Ladies

  • Ladies must live alone (widowed, divorced, separated or single).
  • Ladies must be in receipt of State Pension and/or Pension Credit.
  • Ladies must have lived in a West Midlands county and no more than 60 miles from Birmingham Town Hall for at least 5 years.
  • Ladies’ income must be less than £193 per week.
  • Ladies' savings must be less than £10,000.
  • Ladies must have a bank, building society or post office account in their sole name which can accept

BACs payments. Post office card accounts do not accept BACs payments and therefore cannot be accepted.

At the moment ladies receive £260 twice yearly.

All the above are subject to review at each Trustees’ Meeting.

Applications can be made by completing a simple form. Before applying, please read our Guidelines for Twice Yearly Grants to Older Ladies and Supplementary Guidance on Supporting Evidence.

The Charity prefers ladies to apply online through a referring body, for example Age Concern, Age UK, Citizens Advice or a Neighbourhood Office. Referring bodies will need to register before being able to submit online applications.


Who can make a twice yearly grant application? Grant applications can be made in one of two ways:

Organisations can make online grant applications on behalf of ladies. Individual ladies can contact the Charity directly.
