Grants of up to £10,000 are usually available for hydrotherapy pools; multi-sensory rooms; mini buses; young carers projects; sibling projects; and bereavement support.
Other projects supported in the past include:
- Friends of Sherwood Park who received a grant of £5,000 towards the creation of the multi-sensory outdoor environment.
