Please note you do not have to be a member of the Foundation or have contributed in order to be eligible for a grant. Applications can be submitted at anytime, but must be made within six months of the date the injury was sustained, unless the Board of Trustees agrees an extension of time in exceptional circumstances. We will accept applications filled in by a nominated person if for whatever reason the claimant is inable.
The Board of Trustees has a responsibility to set and regularly review the criteria on which financial support is made. Each request for assistance is considered on its merit in accordance with the grants criteria. An application that results in financial support being given has no influence on the eligibility of any future application the beneficiary may make and should not be looked upon as a guarantee of future support.
