Home adaptations: specialist equipment allows life to be lived to the full, but finding the money for things like stair lifts, ramp installation and changes to your home is not always simple. We can make this easier.
Funding for mobility aids: we can offer grants that contribute towards equipment that allows you or a family member to move around easily.
Care home top up fee grants: if you or your partner rely on council payments for residential care, and need extra funds to live in your chosen care home, these grants can help you to top up that difference.
Sheltered housing support: if you are looking for sheltered housing or assisted living, we may be able to help you with securing a housing association home.
Funding for respite breaks: we can help cover the costs associated with respite breaks for you or your family.
Grants for carers: many of you will be balancing caring responsibilities with a full-time job, and we don’t want anyone to miss out on attending career-building scientific events. You can apply for up to £1,000 per year towards the cost of care that you usually provide.
Assistance grants: the opportunity to attend chemistry-related meetings, conferences and workshops should be open to everyone. The assistance grant provides up to £1,000 towards equipment that means you can attend, additional travel expenses or to allow someone to travel with you.
