Welfare support

Welfare support from UNISON

Rising bills and stagnating wages are driving down the standard of living at an alarming rate. On the one hand we have energy companies hiking up prices and taking home huge profits, while vulnerable people literally freeze to death, and on the other, greedy bankers and payday loan sharks waiting to plunge us deeper into debt. If you’re a UNISON member and find yourself in need of financial assistance, grants and funding are available from There for You (UNISON Welfare). There for You don’t guarantee they can provide financial assistance but your branch can support you to put in an application.

There is also a small grants programme which provides help with winter fuel and school uniform costs. For more information contact There for You on 020 7121 5620 or email thereforyou@unison.co.uk or contact us.
