RCOT members affected by COVID-19 can now apply for support grants of up to £2,500.
The grants are designed to help with general living costs, unexpected bills, disability equipment, psychological support or counselling and other difficulties, including job loss, reduced income, relationship breakdown, bereavement, or other work-related or personal circumstances.
Funding is available for members who require further support following an application to UNISON’s ‘There for You’ funding, and for self-employed members ineligible for UNISON funding.
Particular consideration is being given to those at greater risk from being impacted by the pandemic, including those working in high-risk environments such as critical care or in care homes, disabled individuals or those living with long-term health conditions, including long COVID, ethnic minorities, and people living in areas with higher restrictions on the economy.
