Benefits, Money

Do grants from charities reduce your universal credit payment?

No, any income you receive from voluntary sources – such as from friends and family or from charities – is disregarded completely when calculating benefits. This means the amount of benefit you are entitled to is not affected by this kind of income.​ See entitledto and search for grants at Turn2us.
