The Jersey Christmas Appeal helps the most disadvantaged and needy individuals and families in Jersey at Christmas.
How many people are helped?
Last year the Appeal provided direct help to over 1,100 individuals. It also provides help indirectly through donations and assistance provided to charities and other associations.
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 Approved Referring Agencies, as listed on the back of the application form. Click here to download an application form.
The form is countersigned by the Approved Referring Agency and then checked by the Appeal in absolute confidence with government authorities where appropriate.
