Finding Grants for the Disabled





Looking for grants and extra funding is a daunting task with the staggering array of options and conditions!

Here at Disability Grants we give you a wealth of information on where to go and who to contact to make it easier for you to find the right grant.

And....our monthly newsletter and Facebook page will keep you up to date with what’s new and give you access to lots of other tips and resources.

But as you can imagine this is a huge undertaking and try as we might Disability Grants doesn’t have the monopoly on Grant information and we are unable to provide face to face advice and guidance.

So, where else can you go for more information and answers to your questions?



Turn 2 Us

Turn 2 Us provides information on charities and benefits through a free accessible website.

It is able to offer an online benefits's and grant search.

Turn 2 Us can be contacted on-line, by telephone or face to face through partner organisations.





Citizens Advice

Citizens Advice is able to provide information on local charities and trusts as well benefit and legal advice.  

They can help with the completion of application forms and provide referrals to other local agencies such as food banks.

Their offices can be found in most towns and cities in the UK. Support is also available online and by telephone.
