Personal Grants

A little bit of help that can go a long way

We can’t always be prepared for life’s unexpected turns or an unforeseeable expense, but we can be there for each other when times get tough.

No matter how big or small, a Personal Grant can go a long way to making you and the people you care about financially more secure.

As a OneFamily customer you can apply for a Personal Grant of up to £500 for yourself or on behalf of a loved one. Applications are open throughout the year and awarded to OneFamily customers every month.
