About the fund
The Ann Alice Rayner Fund helps Jersey residents who find themselves in financial difficulties and cannot get support through the usual processes.
The fund may also make awards to Jersey charities with similar aims (that are not owned or administered by the Government).
Individuals or charities can apply for one off grants or monthly awards.
The Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) acts as income administrator and makes decisions on distributions from the fund.

How to apply
All individual applicants must come through a sponsor. Individuals cannot apply directly.
Your sponsor should be a professional person who has close dealings with you (for example, your GP, Health Visitor or Social Worker) or an organisation.

How a decision is made
The JCF meets several times a year to:
- consider new applications
- make award decisions
They compare the information in your application form to the fund's award criteria. They also consider your need against that of other applicants.
You'll be notified of the outcome soon after the decision has been taken.
