Grants awarding charities and how to apply

If you have a visual impairment or other disability there are a number of organisations that may be able to offer financial assistance. Financial support may be available to fund the purchase of technology, equipment, education or in some cases day to day living expenses.

We have pulled together a list of over 30 organisations that in our experience have supported our service users. The charities listed are usually location, industry, disability and/or age specific so please read the document carefully and make sure you apply to an appropriate funder. While we can’t help with your application we may be able to offer advice on who best could support you, so if you have any questions get in touch with our First Step Team on 0300 222 5555.

The document also provides step by step advice on how to write your application and give yourself the best chance of success.

Just fill in your details below and we’ll send you the list and advice as a Word document.
