Policy on the Awarding of Grants

Grants will only be considered towards projects which will improve living conditions in the home of the visually impaired applicant including where appropriate computer equipment and software. Grants will normally be limited to 75% of the cost (excluding VAT where this can be reclaimed by the County Council) and subject to a maximum of £500.

Grants will only be considered if the County Council has confirmed that the aids are not the statutory responsibility of the Social Services Department. Grants will be awarded but will only be paid when the remainder of the required funding has been identified. Grants awarded will be at the discretion of the Association and there is no guarantee that an application for funding will be approved.
