The Paul Bush Foundation Trust supports registered charitable organisations in England whose objectives are solely related to the provision of services to people with an acquired disability as a result of an accident or birth injury.
Grants of up to £10,000 for one year only are awarded at twice yearly meetings held in April and October. Preference is given to discrete projects with defined outcomes and seed-funding will be considered. For example, grants may be awarded for:
- Projects or items related to improving the health and well-being of individuals suffering as the result of an acquired physical disability.
- Projects or services aimed at providing education to disabled people, their families and professionals regarding the difficulties they face.
- Projects or services that assist individuals or families to overcome social deprivation related to disability.
Funding is also available to assist those individuals with a disability to improve their physical, psychological and emotional well-being. Applications for funding for individuals must be supported and completed by a third-party sponsor, for example, a health/personal care professional, social worker or charity /support group representative.
The Trustees meet twice yearly in April and October with successful applicants being advised by 1st November and 1st May each year.
