YMCA Lincolnshire Hardship Fund

Great News – We are allocating more resources into the YMCA Lincolnshire Hardship Fund. Which has been made available from the Barclays Covid-19 Community Aid Package. For further information please see below.


YMCA Lincolnshire works with communities and partners to support people at all times of their life to fulfil their potential. This includes through the hard times, when times get tough we are here. We have worked with Barclays to respond to the effects of Covid and have been awarded funds through Barclays Covid 19 Community Aid Package to support people in specific areas of deprivation across Lincolnshire. We are utilising these funds to ensure that the most in need can access these funds.

This fund can be utilised in numerous ways for example, clothes, kitchen equipment, basic living needs, white goods etc… this is not prescriptive list.

The five award areas are Spalding, Gainsborough, Boston, East Coast and Lincoln. However we will consider those in need from other areas within Lincolnshire.

Request must be completed by a referral agency, such as a Social Prescriber, Social Worker, Youth Support Worker, Housing Assistant, Job Centre Adviser, Work Coach, Careers Adviser, Teacher… (again this list is not prescriptive anyone in a professional capacity can refer).

The maximum amount that can be awarded is £100, however, in exceptional circumstances we would consider an application maximum of £250 (white goods etc). Duplicate applications for an individual will not be accepted.
