Sophie’s Fund is a charity that supports people who are struggling financially and who are local to Uttlesford
An unexpected change – rent rise, illness, job loss, relationship breakdown – can tip people over the edge financially. When this happens a small grant can sometimes make all the difference.
Sophie’s Fund can help cover the cost of things like fresh food, nappies, gas or electricity top ups, kitchen equipment, prescription charges and medical supplies, clothing or travel to appointments. If things are really bad it can help someone move into a refuge.
The fund was inspired by a local schoolgirl, so horrified to hear of people who couldn’t afford everyday needs, that she decided to raise money to help.
Sophie’s Fund can provide small grants to any local people suffering financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
