We’re proud that the work we do in the New Forest area is supported by the Dibden Allotments Fund.
The Dibden Allotments Charity is a charity that provides support to individuals living in the Parishes on Hythe, Dibden, Fawley, and Marchwood – who find themselves in NEED, HARDSHIP, or DISTRESS. The DAC also provides support to organisations working in the area with similar values.
One of the ways in which the Dibden Allotments Fund supports local people is their “Grants to Individuals” scheme.
Here’s more about the scheme:
Application for a Grant by Individuals
Grants to individuals can take many forms, for example it could be vouchers for food, clothes or household items, the supply of white goods or furniture, which we would arrange to have delivered directly to you, via a local supplier.
In all cases we will require an application form to be completed, giving details about you, your family, current income and expenditure and what you would like the grant for and why.
It would also be helpful if you could supply a supporting statement from a “Professional” such as a Heath or Social Worker, Midwife or Teacher.
It would be unusual for an individual to receive more than a single grant in any one year or for goods already provided to an individual by the Fund to be replaced within what a manufacturer would consider to be “ a reasonable period of use”.
