Grants and Funding
At SDL many of our customers are assisted through the help of Charities, Grants and Access to work funding. Below you will find a few associations that may be able to assist you in getting the help you may need. A small grant may be all that is required to keep you mobile, allow you to live your life without a carer. There are many useful products that can be funded to allow you to remain independent.
“If you dont ask, you wont get”. Why not give us a call and we will try and help in advising if we know of funding that has been previously awarded (even in special circumstances).
Or if you are a charity, please do not hesitate to contact us as we have clients who would love a little extra help, and we will add your details to our growing list of charities and associations.
