There are a lot of big organisations who offer valuable services which help dramatically (links to some of these charities can be found on our homepage). However, the day to day reality of supporting someone you love in this situation is much, much harder than people imagine.
We found there were small gaps in the UK’s supportive network – these we aim to assist in filling to the best of our ability.
Sadly, we cannot solve people’s financial problems, we simply hope that with the generosity of our contributors and supporters we can provide little gestures to “make life a little easier” for those who need it.
If you and your family need assistance please download our Grant Application below and email it to us by clicking the ‘Submit Form’ button at the top of the application.
