Our Carer's Grants can help by funding activities or equipment that help you to relax or learn new skills.
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak we've had to change the way we process our grants. At the moment, we can’t send out or receive printed grant application forms by post.
Please do not post your forms to us. If you’ve sent an application by post in the last couple of days, there’s a possibility your grants application won’t be processed.
See below for how to send your forms to us by email.
How to apply
To apply, you'll need to fill in an application form.
We'll also need a letter of support and two quotes for the item you're requesting
How to send your form by email
There are two ways to send your form by email:
- Use a smart phone or device to take pictures of each page of your printed form and supporting documents and email them to email@example.com
- Complete the editable application form online, save the form to your computer and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org together with your supporting document.
If you don’t own a smart phone or device, please reach out to friends, family or your local group who may be able to help you.
Your questions answered
What can the Carer's Grant fund?
Our grants fund a wide range of activities for both leisure and personal development.
- Grants for leisure: These fund activities or equipment for hobbies that help you to unwind or try something new.
- Personal development grants: They're there to help fund activities that help you gain knowledge for a new career or for 'life skills', such as driving.
Who can apply?
If you care for someone with MS in the UK and you're not paid for it, then you can apply.
What happens if my application is unsuccessful?
Due to high demand, we can't offer grants to everyone who applies. When we can't offer a grant, we'll signpost you to alternative funding options.
Are there any deadlines?
No, there are no deadlines. Applications will be considered monthly.
