Service description:
LHH is a national charity providing financial assistance to people who are in hardship due to illness or disability. This includes physical and mental health problems, learning disabilities and people caring for an adult or child with a disability.
Only those who are living on a very low income, receiving the appropriate welfare benefits and have exhausted all other funding sources including statutory funding, local and occupational charities, will be considered for a grant.

Financial assistance may be provided under the following two categories:-

One-off Grants
These are generally awarded towards essential household items and specialist equipment not available from statutory agencies. When funds are available, we also offer grants towards carer's breaks.

Regular Beneficiaries
LHH supports around 70 ill and disabled people who have been identified as being in need of on going financial help. Quarterly gifts help contribute towards daily living expenses and regular contact is maintained through quarterly newsletters, birthday & Christmas cards as well as a personal visit from the Secretary once a year where possible.
