Funding for Projects that Support Disabled Children and their Families (UK)

Local organisations and projects that support disabled children and their families have the opportunity to apply for funding through the True Colours Trust.

Grants of up to £10,000 are usually available for one-off purposes, to help smaller organisations develop and deliver programmes for children, their siblings and families. The Trustees are particularly keen to award grants for:

  • Hydrotherapy pools
  • Multi sensory rooms
  • Mini buses
  • Young carers projects
  • Sibling projects
  • Bereavement support.

The True Colour Trust also makes grants of up to £5,000 for improving access to affordable palliative care in sub-Saharan Africa. Trustees favour support for items which directly improve the patient experience and the standard of palliative care services.

Priority is given to:

  • Equipment for patients
  • Palliative care for children and young people
  • Palliative care medicines
  • Capital improvement costs
  • Increasing access to palliative care in rural areas
  • Training courses for palliative care service providers held in Africa.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
