People who are living with a disability and would benefit from access to computer technology. The trust operates primarily within the East Midlands (Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire) but will occasionally consider applications from further afield. Grants are occasionally made to those who are disadvantaged by reasons other than disability.
The trust does not make grants for general living expenses, course or college fees, disability aids such as wheelchairs or any non-electronic items.
Type of grants
Grants of £200 to £500 towards the cost of computer equipment.
In writing to the correspondent, either directly by the individual, carer or parent or through a welfare organisation such as social services or a Citizens Advice. Applications should include:
- name, address, telephone number and age
- background information
- the nature and extent of the disability
- financial information – income/expenditure and how much can be contributed towards the equipment
- why a computer would be beneficial
- the specific equipment needed, including any software and a quotation if possible
For individuals applying directly, a supporting letter from a GP, social worker, teacher or similar should be included. Applications are considered in April and October.
