Aberlour Urgent Assistance Fund

We administer the Aberlour Urgent Assistance Fund, which awards cash grants to assist children and young people (aged 21 and under) across Scotland, and their families, who are suffering extreme hardship.

This support is usually via cash grants to assist with a range of needs, such as emergency clothing, bedding, appliance repairs or replacement of appliances that have failed; and other situations where emergency furniture is required – for example, for a family whose home has been damaged due to flooding, or for a parent who has fled domestic abuse and had to leave belongings behind.

Please note, available funds are limited and all applications will be evaluated against evidence of a family’s financial status.

Applications must be endorsed and submitted by a sponsor, acting in their professional capacity.

To qualify for cash grants from the Trust:

  • There must be a child in the family who is 21 or under.
  • That child must be suffering extreme hardship.
  • Grants are made at the discretion of the Trust.
  • A sponsor must submit a fully completed and legible application on an official application form
