To apply, please complete an General Assistance Application Form.

If you have a support worker such as physiotherapist, occupational therapist etc.. and they are willing to support your request, please ask them to complete a Support Agency Referral Form as this will help us assess your request

(Note for Support Agency - The above link will direct you to our on-line application site. If you are not able to access this, please contact the Charity for a paper referal form.)

The Charity is not able to supply equipment that is normally available via the NHS or which should be paid for from statutory funding, such as Disabled Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or a Disabled Facilities Grant. You or your support worker will need to show that statutory funding (if available) has been applied for and declined or unreasonably delayed before applying to the Charity or that the required equipment is substantially different from that which would normally be available.

Please provide your Doctor’s details when applying as a letter confirming your medical condition will be sought in respect of your application. Your consent will be requested before we contact your Doctor and you may request a copy of the response, if you so require. If your request relates to a mobility scooter or motorised wheelchair, an assessment of your capability to use the vehicle will be required. This is normally carried out at the Charity's cost.

Please note that all grant requests are financially assessed and are given at the sole discretion of the Trustees. Grant approval is also dependent upon funds being available within a specified budget.

Approved grants are normally paid direct to the equipment supplier.

If you have any queries concerning what grants may be available, please contact the Charity’s Office.
