About us

The Rainy Day Trust provides support, help and training in a number of ways. Whether this is a with little help covering the bills, or helping you to help yourself with training and other support. Financial assistance can take a number of different forms - maybe assistance with paying utility bills, essential household maintenance, mobility equipment and installations etc. Our Apprentice support programme gives a grant to apprentices in any relevant subjects (plumbing, decorating, electrician, joinery, roofing etc) and will re-open for applications in 2020. The "Support Your Workforce" project is a new scheme designed to assist human resource professionals in their work by giving them additional tools to be able to bring positive help to employees who may be struggling with debt, family problems, poor health or depression (or all of these). These are all detailed on our website along with more information and how to apply. We welcome corporate support and are actively seeking sponsors for our Christmas appeal. We are also recruiting volunteers from within the business sector to help promote the services we offer within their company, and in other roles across the UK.
