Cystic Fibrosis Trust
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust provides financial support to children and adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
- Welfare Grants - to help during times of stress or crisis with items that are not funded by any other agency. This might include household items, funding a break or additional costs during hospitalisation.
- Grants for modern nebulisers - If you are still using the old fashioned type nebuliser the Trust may be able to replace it with a modern type.
Applications for these two grants should be made on the Welfare Grants application form. Support will be required from a suitable professional. There is also a separate form for help with Funeral Expenses.
The Trust also offers support through:
The Joseph Levy Memorial Trust - to help young adults over 18 years develop their careers in further and higher education. It may help towards tuition fees, living expenses, examination fees or other costs that help the young person with their career.
