Equipment Grants

We’re here to help improve the care and ease the burden of looking after a child who is seriously ill or disabled.

We really do understand the emotional and financial strain it imposes on parents and carers.

  • In the last three years we have made more than 350 grants to individuals and organisations.

Who qualifies?

Grants are available to individuals as well as organisations.

What we fund?

We aim to provide whatever is needed:

  • It may be medical, such as monitoring equipment.
  • It may be basic care like feeding tubes or hoists.
  • It may be sensory play or mobility equipment for a nursery or playgroup.

Is there a limit?

In principle, no. Typically, a grant can be anywhere between £100 and £6,000. We do our best to handle each application sympathetically and we help whenever we can.

In the last three years we have made more than three hundred grants to individuals and organisations.
