To be eligible, an applicant must live in Dorset (post 1974 boundary changes) and should be prepared to provide supporting evidence including a statement of finances if required. Most applications are made through other organizations (e.g. ‘Handicapped Children’s Action Group’, ‘Turn to Us’ or local clinicians). All requests for funding are treated as confidential.
As a small charity with limited resources, we cannot fund every application, nor can we finance all of the cost of special equipment, but we may be able to make a contribution. Examples where we have been able to help have included part funding towards the cost of mobility scooters for a number of severely handicapped children.
