Our payments can be used to help you with your bills, household costs, travel or other essentials that you’ve incurred as a result of something happening that you couldn’t have expected. They are not loans, you don’t have to pay us back and it costs you nothing to apply to us.
"When I was ill, I had to give up my position as a teaching assistant. TST supported me so I could get back on track"
"I spent so much looking after myself and my daughter I ran out of money for the essentials. TST gave me the chance to move closer to family"
"When a Housing Association found me a home near work, TST helped me to pay my first month’s rent and gave me money for carpets and furniture."
