The grants we make cover a wide range of things, from wheelchairs, specialised seating and beds, adapted trikes, to communication aids and sensory toys. And as our running costs to date are extremely low, the vast majority of funds really do get to where they are needed.
The ways in which we can help disabled people and their families are many and varied – every aspect of life is a challenge and the funds we raise do make a real difference. In paying for much needed equipment for these children and adults, we are helping to improve not only their own lives, but also those of their parents, siblings and carers. This is a need that never decreases.
Take a look at some of the stories about the children and adults we have helped to get an idea of the types of grants we award. You can see we fund a wide range of specialised equipment such as wheelchairs, trikes, seats and sensory equipment.
