    Grant for bedding, saucepans, clothing

    I am on ESA Support group and was wondering if i can claim for a grant for bedding, saucepans, plates and clothing. I have lost weight due to my health and got no clothes that fit and was wondering if i can apply for a grant.

    Any advice would be great.

    The DWP do grants and loans not sure how you would get one, give them a call also your local Red Cross shop might be able to put you in contact with someone regards plates and pans

    also regards clothes if you have a local Food Bank they sometimes do some clothes

    You can only get a crisis grant if you are getting some IR benefit.
    Why don't you have bedding,pans and plates already, have you just moved from supported accomodation? I ask because you would have to prove genuine need.
    I agree with DW, Charity shops do clothes etc.

    hi yes you would be able to get a loan while on E.S.A not sure about grant unless there is special circumstances i.e moved home etc... ring the helpline up and ask for a grant form and a social loan form good luck very easy to fill in
