Staff Hardship Fund
We appreciate that you will have questions about the Staff Hardship Fund and have endeavoured to address what they might be below. If you have a question that is not listed please email us at:firstname.lastname@example.org
The Staff Hardship Grant fund has a limit of £1,500 per application, but the amount trustees award is tailored to your need and situation and our fund guidelines.
You are only eligible to receive one grant in a 12 month period – you can apply as many times as you need, but once you receive a grant, we are not able to consider another application from you within 12 months. This is because funds are limited and we want to ensure we can help as many staff members as possible!
If you feel that your application should not have been rejected, please get in touch with a member of staff at email@example.com with any information you think is relevant and can help your application, and we will guide you through the appeal process.
Please let us know of any relevant changes to your situation as they happen so we can ensure that your application is kept updated so that our grant panel can make informed decisions.
You will be contacted by a staff member if your application is approved who will guide you through the next steps. We will never pay grants to you through your pay check as we are a separate organisation to CareTech Holdings Ltd and so we have no link to the HR or payroll system at CareTech Holdings Ltd
No! We are a completely separate organisation to CareTech Holdings Ltd and so we do not share any information with CareTech Holdings Ltd. Everything you tell the Foundation will remain confidential and we will not contact anyone at your workplace. If we need to verify any information, we will always ask for your consent first. Occasionally we have to reject applications if they concern a clerical or policy matter with CareTech Holdings Ltd and so we are unable to support. In this case, we may sometimes ask you if we have your consent to contact the HR department at CareTech Holdings Ltd to bring your situation to their attention to see if they can offer any more support.
