Important notes

Please note that Starter Packs and Acts435 crowd-funding are only available once to any individual, and if a referral is accepted it must be collected by the referral agency and not the person being referred.

We can only process one Acts435 referral per referrer at a time. Requests should be for a specific, costed, item (or items), up to a maximum value of £120. We do not take referrals for bonds or rent payments.

This form should be completed by an individual working at a recognised referring organisation (the "referring agent") on behalf of the intended recipient (the "applicant").

Fields marked * are required.
