The Lord Provost Charity help people in crisis and desperate need in the City of Glasgow, with offering support and financial assistance to those in crisis.
The Children's Fund
This Fund is designed to assist disadvantaged children and young people under the age of 18 and attend a public school. The objectives of the fund are as follows:
An example of an application to this fund would be to cover the cost of a residential school trip for a child who would otherwise not be able to go on due to their family not being able to afford this. This ensures that the child doesn't miss out on this opportunity and is able to participate with the rest of their class.
Lord Provost's Vulnerable Citizens
This fund is designed to assist vulnerable and socially isolated adults between the age of 18 and 66 years. The objectives of the fund are as follows:
Examples of things that the fund has covered are things like white goods, furniture and clothing.
Lord Provost's Senior Citizens
This Fund is designed to assist vulnerable and socially isolated older people over the age of 66. The objectives of the Lord Provost's Fund for Older People are as set out below:
An example of an application to this fund would be a request to cover the cost of fire-retardant bed sheets, clothing, white goods and furniture.
The funds are administered by Social Work and Education Services on behalf of the Lord Provost of Glasgow, which ensures that the people who are most in need can be identified and supported.
Beatson Cancer Charity supports people affected by cancer, every step of the way. We make the journey easier by transforming the way cancer care is funded and delivered. We provide services, as well as funding specialists, research and education to invest in a better future for cancer patients and their families.
