The Trust is passionate about making a difference to the lives of disabled children and their families and improving access to good palliative care.
The Trustees are committed to supporting a large number of excellent local organisations and projects that work with disabled children and their families on a daily basis. This is done through the Trust’s small grants programme. It provides grants of up to £10,000 to help smaller organisations develop and deliver programmes for children, their siblings and families. It is open to applications at any time. Grants in this category are usually one-off contributions for projects or core costs rather than multi-year grants for on-going revenue costs.
The Trustees are particularly keen to support:
- Hydrotherapy pools
- Multi-sensory rooms
- Mini buses
- Sibling projects
- Bereavement support
- Specialised play equipment / access to play and leisure
- Family support / parent-led peer support
