How to Apply

Who can apply?

Applications can be made by parents or carers on behalf of individual children, or by non-profit making groups and organisations (e.g. not-for-profit schools, colleges or registered charities working with children up to, and including, the physical age of 18 years). The child must live (or the organisation must be based) within our catchment area which is usually considered to be a 15 mile radius of Farnborough. 

What can I apply for?

We will consider requests for funding of specific items which will be of clear and direct benefit to the child/children. These are usually bespoke or specialist items such as Specialist Trikes, Wheelchairs, Special Needs Pushchairs, Car Seats, Mobile Hoists, Sensory Equipment. Take a look at our Case Studies page to see things we have funded in the past. Please note: For requests for iPad's, we will ask for specific supporting evidence from a professional such as the child's teacher, or healthcare worker, which outlines how it will be used and how that will specifically benefit the child.

We won't fund....

We will not consider applications for the following (list not exhaustive):

  • Repayment of loans

  • house or garden improvements or adaptations

  • administrative/salary costs

  • maintenance, insurance or on-going costs

  • distribution to other organisations

  • reimbursement of funds already paid out

  • hire, rental costs or down payments

  • trips or holiday costs

  • medical treatment, therapy (including physio) or research
