Service description:
We provide grants to physically disabled and sensory impaired students studying in the UK – in further or higher education or those training towards employment.

Our Grants help cover additional costs that students incur as a result of their disability and where available statutory funding does not cover them. Costs include vital support such as sign language interpreters, people to take notes, computers, specialist software, wheelchairs or special accommodation and equipment.

About 100 grants are awarded each year, ranging from £250 to £2,000 (£2,500 in exceptional circumstances). Applications are reviewed by our Selection panel. The panel is made up of both disabled and non-disabled people who have knowledge and understanding of a wide range of disabilities – from sight and hearing impairments to paralysis, cerebral palsy, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, joint and bone diseases and lupus.

Besides giving financial grants, the trust also takes an active interest in individuals, offering encouragement to students during their studies and beyond.

Eligibility:
If you have a physical or sensory disability and are in post-16 education, you can apply to us for help with additional disability-related costs that are not fully provided for you from available statutory funding.

You can apply for help with funding such things as:
Human help – sign language interpreters and people to take notes
Computer equipment
Adapted or additional accommodation
Travel costs
Mobility equipment
Other costs which relate solely to disability
