There are currently no deadlines for applications, and they are are being assessed remotely. The Care Fund is doing its best to make the process as swift as possible. Grants are being paid via bank transfer.
Application forms are available on the website: http://www.rcag.org.uk/index.php/the-archdiocese/st-nicholas-care-fund and can be emailed directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other conditions remain the same - you need to submit an application form, get two referees, and one-off costs only will be covered.
