The Trustees will only award one-off grants to help a specific project or need.
Consideration will be given for partial funding, especially of larger claims.
Please note that projects or items will not be funded retrospectively. This includes items for which a deposit has been paid.
Awards will not be given for medical needs or equipment, or the provision of any service that is the responsibility of the individual’s Service Provider.
Only one application may be submitted, per beneficiary, during any one calendar year.
Applications must state exactly what is required and why.
