Here is a collection of funding rounds from local and national organisations focused on helping charities provide relief to clients with health or disability issues.

The Langley Foundation offers grants to people with a recent on-set of illness or disability which puts them financially at risk.

Upon qualifying, grants of around £300 can be given to help applicants with:

  • Business costs e.g. one month’s rent
  • Family breaks for families with children
  • One month’s childcare costs

Happy Days Children's Charity 

The Charity offers grants for families with children aged 3-17 who are disabled, have a special need or have been abused.

Because the scheme can be seen as a continuous rolling programme; there is no deadline and so applications could be accepted at any time.
