Money and digital grants for residents

As part of our Thriving Communities strategy, we’re delighted to offer two money and digital grants for Sovereign residents. 

The first is able to provide you with the equipment you need to get online and the second is to help if you need a new white good, like a washing machine, fridge freezer or oven, but are struggling to afford to buy them yourself.

Below, you’ll find information about what grants are available and how they’re managed by our external partner Charis.
