How is the level of support decided?

A small grant awards panel will consider your application in confidence, together with your recent bank statements for the preceding three months.  The panel may ask that a representative of the charity visits you at home to discuss your circumstances in more detail or request further information before reaching a decision.

For those in urgent need of help, an initial payment may be made immediately.

Ongoing support after the initial decision is reviewed annually or when there is a significant change in circumstances.

If you feel you need help, it is always worth applying.  Even if you don’t qualify for financial assistance, Vetlife may be able to signpost you to alternative sources of help or fund professional benefits and debt advice for you.

There is no requirement to have made any donations to the charity in the past or to be a member of any veterinary organisations.
