Welcome to the VRF grant application portal
The VRF (Vicar’s Relief Fund) provides crisis grants to individuals at risk of, or currently experiencing, homelessness. Our grants are open to all 4 Nations of the UK and must be applied for via frontline workers. We consider up to £350 to prevent eviction, and up to £500 to help access accommodation.
We are now open for grant application submissions Monday-Friday 9am-12pm, excluding bank holidays.
Registering and applying for a grant:
We do not accept applications from individuals directly. If you are a paid frontline worker, supporting people at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness, you can apply to us on behalf of the individuals you are supporting.
Before you can submit a grant application on behalf of someone you are supporting, you need to apply for a user account with us, via our flexi-grant portal.
To begin this, scroll down and click on the ‘register’ button at the bottom of this page. After verifying your email address, you will then need to complete a New User Registration form. You will not be able to begin a grant application until this has been submitted, checked, and approved by our team. We aim to process the forms within 5 working days.
If you have already set up your email address and password, click the ‘login’ button at the bottom of the page to access your account.
