One of our most Frequently Asked Questions is ....
Are there grants for household items and help towards utility bills?
This includes washing machines, cookers, beds and carpets as well as other everyday essentials such as heating.
The Good News is.....Charities across the UK will help individuals and families struggling on low income – both with or without a disability.
Many of these charities are already included on the Disability Grants website in our other sections.
So, to make your search for funding easier we have grouped this information together all in one place with links to other agencies.
The charities are grouped by pages.....
