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?
