“Even though I had a degree, PAG were the only ones who could give me a grant because I wasn’t a member of a professional body”
“PAG gave me a monthly grant and a monetary gift when my wife became ill and I had to give up work to look after her. I also received an education grant for our teenage daughter to help with her school uniform and books ”.
