The Wolfson Foundation has announced that the next closing date for applications to its Disability and Special Needs Grants Programme is the 5th January 2016. Through the programme, the Wolfson Foundation, makes grants of between £15,000 – £100,000 to charities working with people with disabilities and/or the elderly which are providing excellent services. Grants are awarded towards:
- New buildings, refurbishments and equipment, with the aim of increased access to services for new and existing users
- Improved quality and range of services
- Improved financial stability of the organisation.
The Foundation are particularly interested in hearing from organisations working with disabilities for which it may be harder to raise funds from the public or those offering employment opportunities. They are also interested in the transition from children’s to adults’ services, recognising the particular difficulties for this age group. Special schools and special colleges are eligible to apply under this funding programme.
