If you're struggling financially and need help with money, you may be eligible to apply for a grant.
Lightning Reach have launched a secure, online portal which allows you to find and apply for support from multiple providers, quickly and easily.
It aims to match people to personalised support they may be eligible for based on their circumstances, and also allows them to use the information provided across multiple applications to different organisations.
The platform says that individuals are in some cases able to receive hardship grant money within five days of applying.
“It’s free, easy to use, accessible on a mobile phone and takes 10-15 minutes to complete a profile and see what support is available,” a spokesperson said.
The way the platform works cuts out the need to fill out lots of different forms and saves charities time and money, he added.
