  • Home adaptations
  • Holidays

Who can apply?

The Suffolk Disability Care Fund welcomes applications from Health Professionals and/or voluntary organisations working alongside children and adults with disabilities who understand the needs of applicants from both a suitability and financial perspective.

Although priority will be given to applicants with limited resources, formal means testing will not be applied.

To apply, the Foundation requires:

  • An application form completed by the beneficiary’s Health Professional
  • Copies of two written estimates for equipment from suppliers
  • Any other material you consider relevant to support your application i.e. assessment relevant to the equipment
