The Ogilvie Charities
The Ogilvie Charities offer one-off grants, in the region of£100-£200 to individuals in need to buy essential items not supplied by statutory agencies - e.g. beds and bedding, cookers, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines and clothing.
Applications must be made through a social worker, community nurse or similar professional agency and payment is made direct to that agency.
The fund is open to those in acute poverty and carers.
