Ann Alice Rayner Fund

About the fund

The Ann Alice Rayner Fund helps Jersey residents who find themselves in financial difficulties and cannot get support through the usual processes.

The fund may also make awards to Jersey charities with similar aims (that are not owned or administered by the Government).

Individuals or charities can apply for one off grants or monthly awards.

The Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) acts as income administrator and makes decisions on distributions from the fund.

Who can apply for funding

To apply for funding you must meet the fund's criteria. You're also expected to have applied for funding from all other sources: 

  • income support
  • injury
  • disability
  • sickness benefit

How to apply

All individual applicants must come through a sponsor. Individuals cannot apply directly.

Your sponsor should be a professional person who has close dealings with you (for example, your GP, Health Visitor or Social Worker) or an organisation.

Citizens Advice can offer more information, act as sponsor or provide application forms and advice.

How a decision is made

The JCF meets several times a year to:

  • consider new applications
  • make award decisions

They compare the information in your application form to the fund's award criteria. They also consider your need against that of other applicants.

You'll be notified of the outcome soon after the decision has been taken.
