Small welfare grants may be available for disability-related equipment such as scooters. These grants are not a substitute for statutory funding though they may top it up, so if you contact us about something that should be available to you through the NHS, Social Services or other Government funds we may refer you back to your local service. If you are assessed by them as not eligible, asked to wait an unreasonable period of time or asked to pay a contribution you cannot afford we may be able to help.
Heating grants are made annually to members on a low income who are too young to qualify for the Government’s Winter Fuel Payment.
Application forms and further information can be obtained through our Support Service Team
If we are unable to help we will try to give you contact details for an organisation that can.
Please note we are not able to make grants to non-members. If you would like to take advantage of these grants please consider joining.
