Notes

To qualify for assistance individuals must currently be under the care of the medical profession due to sickness or disability (either physical or mental).  Consideration will generally be given to anyone in receipt of benefits and persons whose capital is not more than £5000. Examples of grant items are flooring, bedding, clothing, white goods, aids and adaptations that promote good health.  However, there are certain restrictions, for example, it is not possible to consider applications to repay debt or cover council tax, rent or mortgage payments.

Grant applications are also welcome from local organisations and associations which are directly involved with illness or disability.  Recent examples include grants for therapeutic services, short-term projects for recovering addicts, equipment for use in a Hospice or Respite Care Unit
