We applied to Trefoil for holiday money.
This meant we could go on holiday and not have to worry about having no spending money. I was actually in tears looking for someone to help us.
I can't remember whether we applied online or rang them up. They were very nice.
First year we applied we got £500.
Second year we applied we got £350.
They ask for references from a specialist/doctor. But do chase them up as specialists drag their feet - they did in our case.
I explained to them I was applying again because we had money to pay towards the Motability car contribution as they call it.
If you apply 2 years on the run you have to wait 3 years, to give others the chance of getting help.
They made our holiday so much more relaxing and enjoyable and Michael able to enjoy himself without the worry of running out of money. They were a blessing.
Thank you so much for sharing this Diane.
It really makes it a holiday if you don't have to watch every penny you are spending. When you are away from home there is always lots of extra costs and worrying about this can stop you relaxing and enjoying yourself.
