- Mobility aids, wheelchairs, buggies, hoists, trikes, etc.
- Specialised beds and sleep systems, postural chairs, seating and car seats
- Sensory equipment
- Communication aids, specialised software, specialist alarms
- Medical equipment and support wear.
The funding is available to individuals and support organisations. Applicants need to contact the Foundation on 01829 782808, where they can discuss their needs and request an application form.
