The Liverpool Merchants’ Guild supports people who do not have the resources to pay for the basic, everyday things in life.

You, or someone you know, could be eligible for a one-off grant to maintain independence or regular payments to help cope more easily with the cost of living and day-to-day expenses.


Making a difference since 1880

We help people aged 50 and over who live (or have lived) in the Merseyside area, who are in financial hardship and who have worked in a professional or self-employed capacity (in a non-manual role) or in a supervisory, clerical or non-manual role.

We are looking to support eligible applicants who do not have the resources to pay for the basic things in life. We do this through one-off grants to you to maintain your independence (e.g. equipment or home adaptations) and/or payments to support you cope more easily with daily living expenses.
