Hardship grants

We can sometimes offer financial grants of up to £400 for individual tenants who are experiencing hardship or who have education or training needs.

The Octavia Foundation give out a limited number of grants on behalf of the Friends of Octavia charity. The grants are intended to cover the cost of essential household items such as:

  • Beds
  • Cookers or white goods
  • Basic decorations

We also offer help to fund education or training to cover the cost of things like:

  • Books
  • Travel to training or course venues
  • Clothes for an interview
