The Deakin & Withers Fund was founded thanks to the legacy of Thomas Deakin, a Sheffield businessman. Applications are open to single, divorced or widowed women over 40, who are in need or hardship and are an active member of a church.
Each grant application is assessed on its own merit and help is offered dependent on individual circumstances. Most awards are for around £500.
