A GRANT-MAKING CHARITABLE TRUST
HELPING DISABLED PEOPLE IN SOUTH LAKELAND
We aim to support people with physical disability by making one-off grants to relieve their disability and improve their quality of life.
- Typical grants lie in the region of £200 to £5,000. They may contribute to the cost of respite care, special education, garden access, or equipment such as electric scooters, special chairs or computers.
- We do not fund on-going care or items of a repetitive nature; but second grants for different purposes may be considered if justified.
- Applications should be based on genuine need and not be available from NHS, Social Services, other specialised disability charity, or the applicant’s own resources.
- Before making a grant we require a written application from, or on behalf of, the disabled person.
- Applications may be made by properly constituted bodies acting on behalf of groups of disabled people.
- Applications should be supported by an impartial reference from an unrelated person, e.g. a carer, doctor, or social worker. (N.B. we do not make grants directly to carers.)
- We will independently check the authenticity of applications.
- Applications are considered quarterly in March, June, September and December of each year.
