Application for 50:50 Grant                                                 

Essential medical equipment and therapies can be very expensive and it can be difficult to find funds to cover these, especially when your child has long term illness or disability. Our new 50:50 Grant is designed to help alleviate the financial burden by covering 50% of the cost (for items up to £1,000). We are happy to liaise with other charitable organisations to ensure you are able to get the equipment or therapies your children need as quickly as possible.

Applications are subject to our acceptance criteria and take about 30 days to process, we ask that you respond promptly to any requests for information or documentation so we can process applications as quickly as possible. We order equipment or therapies directly on your behalf so we can take advantage of special charitable discounts and VAT relief where appropriate. 

We welcome applications from parents, carers, teachers, social/support workers and medical professionals.
