Grants for Families and Individuals


Applications for families/individuals must be made by a sponsor, not by the proposed beneficiary. Sponsors can be (but are not necessarily limited to);

  • social services officers,

  • ministers of religion,

  • school teachers/administrators

  • medical practitioners.

  • registered charity

  • NHS

Grants to families/individuals are aimed to help those in need, hardship or distress.  An application form is (almost) always a necessity – without adequate information the Trustees will not be able to reach an appropriate conclusion.  Grants to families/individuals are always paid through the sponsor, never direct to the beneficiary. Beneficiaries must be live in Hanwell W7.

The Ealing Aid in Sickness Trust

We offer grants to a wider geographical area however the following criteria apply

  • The applicant must be in need, hardship or distress.

  • An overriding consideration for grants from this trust is that there must be a medical condition.

  • The geographical coverage is wider than just Hanwell; it includes Perivale, Northolt, Greenford and Central Ealing (W5 and W13) but NOT Acton and Southall.

How to Apply
