When we fund therapy 

Our therapy grants are designed to support children facing the following situations:

  • Psychological issues
  • Additional needs
  • Trauma recover (e.g. abuse, bereavement)
  • Physical difficulties
  • Learning difficulties
  • Hearing impairment
  • Speech and Language delay
  • Global delay
  • Mobility Issues
  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Ongoing health needs, e.g. eating disorders

All applications for therapy grants need to be accompanied by a supporting letter or recent health assessment (within the past 6 months) from a UK health or social professional employed by a statutory organisation (NHS or local authority).

This would normally be from a Nurse, Doctor, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Family Health Visitor/Worker or Social Worker. 

In the first instance, supporting letters will not be accepted from the practitioner who will be employed to conduct the therapy, due to potential conflicts of interest.
