There are two ways NewstrAid can provide financial assistance to people with a news trade connection who are facing hardship.
Regular financial help for those who are facing constant hardship and are struggling to cover ongoing everyday living costs for themselves and their family.
Ongoing assistance is awarded to those whose circumstances are unlikely to change such as the elderly and those who are unable to work due to long term disability. Help with care home fees can also be covered by regular grants.
