Some people with very low incomes struggle to make ends meet. This scheme of regular payments eases this problem by providing regular financial help to eligible people in greatest need.
Regular Charitable Payments (RCP)
Our RCPs are paid quarterly to assist some beneficiaries on very low incomes. They are currently paid at the rate of £33 per week. Although RCPs are modest in amount, they can make a real difference to the quality of life of those receiving them. We are able to provide funds for a fixed number of RCPs – at present just under 1000. At the current rate the annual total is just under £1m.
Prospective RCP recipients are normally identified when a potential beneficiary applies for a Grant for a specific purpose. However an application specifically for a RCP may be considered and would be processed in the same way as an application for a general grant (normally through one of the casework organisations).
