Grants for individuals - Available until 1 March 2017
Six Point Foundation provides one-off grants to UK-resident Jewish Holocaust survivors and refugees in difficult financial circumstances to enhance their quality of life.
We can only make grants once all other sources of funding are exhausted. Therefore we work very closely with the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) and other agencies accessing Claims Conference funds in the UK. We may be able to top up those funds, or step in when there are goods or services that cannot be purchased with the Claims Conference’s UK allocations. Please note that we do not reimburse for goods and services already purchased.
How to apply
We do not take applications for funding directly from individuals. We refer individuals to one of our partner agencies (Agudas; AJR; Bikur Cholim; North London Bikur Cholim; Shalvata) to determine eligibility. They process the grant requests for us. If you think you or someone you know might benefit from a grant, please get in touch with any one of these agencies.
- current UK resident of Jewish origin

- income of less than £10k per annum (excluding any pensions or social security payments) and assets of less than £32k (excluding a primary residence and a car)
- willingness to undertake a home visit from a social worker experienced in assessing Holocaust survivors and refugees which we will arrange.

She sounded extremely relieved and like a different person on the phone. Her husband has regained his freedom as well as his independence. She said it used to take her about half an hour every morning to coax him down the stairs. After trying out the stair lift yesterday, he managed to use it perfectly fine and they are extremely pleased with it.
