We give direct financial relief to frail elderly people in distress when they need it. We are called upon often as a last resort, to help where others cannot or will not.
AFTAID concentrates its efforts and resources directly to elderly people in the UK who, because of ineligibility or, who are only receiving partial funding through statutory or voluntary services, fall through the 'safety net'.
When their need is genuine we try to never let them down.
We make emergency grants for bedding, clothing, cookers, some essential repairs, alarm connections and other essential items that may make an elderly persons life more comfortable and enable them to remain in the home they have created during their lifetime.
