Applications are limited to one per household. This includes members on housing benefit. Priority is given to those who have not previously applied.

To apply:
• Print out and complete the short application form and survey
• Contact Unison Direct on 0800 0857 857 for a postal form

Please send all requested paperwork with the form or the application cannot be accepted.

Applications must be received by 16 February 2018. Post to: UNISON There for You, UNISON Centre, 130 Euston Road, London NW1 2AY.

There is a limited amount in the Winter Fuel Grants programme. Once exhausted no further awards can be made. If you are facing unforeseen hardship you might be able to apply to UNISON’s general grants programme. The There for You team will let you know if this applies to you.
