Age Action & Red Cross COVID-19 Discretionary Hardship Fund 2020

Age Action and the Irish Red Cross have launched a COVID-19 Hardship Fund in partnership to support people experiencing difficulties meeting costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Unexpected costs can put an added strain on older people and the Hardship Fund will assist with the costs of increased food bills and associated delivery costs, replacing or upgrading essential small appliances, additional transport, energy or communication costs and the costs of additional safety or security equipment to enable older people to remain safe and well in their homes.
The Covid19 Hardship Fund opens Wednesday 1st April 2020 and will run for the duration of the corona virus health crisis in Ireland. Initial funds have been raised with the generous assistance of a number of business leaders and corporates, including Tesco, Denis O’Brien, Gas Networks Ireland, Deloitte, RSA Insurance, Prepay Power and Hibernian REIT.
