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. 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. We will not consider applications for (list not exhaustive):Requests for monetary donations

  • 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

  • education or tuition fees

How do I apply?

Step 1

Get a quotation or website link for the equipment or item in advance so that you have a clear indication of the item required and the total cost. Gather any other supporting documentation (e.g. recommendations from the child’s medical specialists such as occupational therapist) as we may ask to see it during our visit

Step 3

The Applications Team will review your application and a member of the Team will be in touch to arrange a visit (this can be face to face or via Zoom) to meet you and the child and seek any additional information.

Step 4

Following our visit we will review your application and inform you of the outcome by email.

Step 5

If successful, we will order and pay for the item directly with the supplier and
ask them to liaise with you for a convenient delivery date.
