Sight Loss Shropshire offers grants to individuals with sight loss, of any age, who are resident in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, in cases where their needs cannot be met by statutory services.
Generally, grants are made toward the cost of items of equipment, or to enable individuals to take part in activities or to obtain a service, which would enhance their quality of life and/or enhance their ability to live more independently.
Applications for grants must be supported by a qualified health, social care, educational or other professional working with people with sight loss who knows the applicant’s personal circumstances. We ask the professional to explain the background to the application, to confirm that the application would not receive funding from a statutory agency and also to confirm that the grant would genuinely benefit the applicant’s ability to cope with sight loss.
If you would like to have a confidential and informal discussion before deciding whether to ask Sight Loss Shropshire for a grant, please contact us at the Sight Loss Shropshire office on 01743 250808, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to help.
