BradAid Suspension Statement
An update on the BRADAID hardship fund
BradAid was conceived to assist when times are hard, we have offered support in the form of unique cash grants since April 2020
The fund has been administered by Bradninch Together, all the money we have given out has been donated by the good people of Bradninch and Hele. Thank you for your support and generosity.
We are very proud of our community, who have given over £12,000.
Sadly we have run out of money.
We are pausing BradAid for the time being. The Bradninch Together Directors are considering the future of this scheme.
BradAid has helped by giving £12,000 to 70 people.
We regret that no new applications for BradAid grants can be accepted until further notice
Hardship Fund for the Bradninch and Hele Community
When times are hard the BradAid fund will quickly help with
money. We are responding to the Coronavirus pandemic with
funds donated by the people of Bradninch and Hele.
We aim to give quick access to awards of up to £50.
We will take each request at face value based on trust.
Applications can be
made through our website and will be confidential.
How to apply
To apply for BradAid please fill out one of the forms below.
We will respond quickly, within 3 days, but likely to be much sooner.
Your application for up to £50 will be considered by BradAid.
An award decision is final.
Each award is up to £50, and is usually made to a bank account - though an alternative payment method can be discussed.
The number of awards per person is limited to 4 in any calendar year (£200)
Applicants should live within the Bradninch Together area or be making an application for someone who does.
Applications on behalf of someone, by family or carers, will be allowed to accommodate those who are incapacitated.
Applicants will be contacted with the outcome of their application and to take banking details or discuss alternatives. They will also be offered signposting to other sources of support.
There is no follow- up or auditing; the award is a gift without oversight, to be of help.
There is no appeals process.
When the fund is gone, it is gone. If all the money has been distributed, we cannot make any ongoing commitment to fulfilling requests.
If the reason for the request matches another source of funding we may redirect the applicant to that alternative fund.
