About Charlie's Gift Grants
We are a grant-making charity that supports children in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The children we help face challenges in life because of special and additional needs, disability, bereavement and poverty. To help you decide whether the child/children in your care are eligible for a grant from us, we have included some details about our grant-making process.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR A GRANT
Children up to the age of 18 years, whose main address is in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire or Buckinghamshire at the time of application and approval.
WHAT YOU CAN APPLY FOR
We consider requests for grants, which will be of clear and direct benefit to the child. Examples may include funding for a specialised piece of equipment (medical, educational or recreational) for use solely by the child, specialised training for family members to better support their child, help with medical treatment costs, or residential trips/days out/holidays. Please note: we do not provide grants for white goods (large domestic electrical items such as fridges or washing machines), or general home renovations.
WHO CAN APPLY FOR A GRANT
Applications for grants of money can be made on behalf of individual children by a parent or guardian, or by a Health, Educational, Social or Welfare professional. Applicants should have direct contact, or be working with the child on a regular basis.
Organisations/Charities can also apply for a grant from Charlie’s Gift. Such organisations should be working with children up to the age of 18 years and be operating out of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire or Buckinghamshire.
The applicant should either be a Trustee or a person in a position of Leadership within your Charity or Organisation.
