Who benefits?

The Jersey Christmas Appeal helps the most disadvantaged and needy individuals and families in Jersey at Christmas.

How many people are helped?

On average 1,500 individuals or families are helped each year.

The Appeal gives out approximately:

  • 250 hampers
  • 1,250 food vouchers
  • 1,300 fuel vouchers
  • 1,000 young persons gift vouchers

How do people ask for help?

The appeal depends heavily on public and third sector agencies to refer people in severe need of assistance.

People in need fill out a simple form requesting assistance for Christmas. The forms are available from Parish Halls or at the Citizens Advice Bureau. Click here to see a sample form.

The form is countersigned by an approved body or person, including the Citizens' Advice Bureau, the Parish Constable, and Family Nursing & Home Care.

The Appeal checks each form in absolute confidence with States and Parish authorities, as appropriate.
