Financial Grants

Reviewed October 2023

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 can be made by or on behalf of individuals, or can 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.

Grants will be available until the funds are exhausted.
