Each application for an Ex-Gratia grant, including those from school leavers, will be considered by Trustees.
Applications will be considered on the merits of each application on a case by case basis. Any decisions regarding an Ex-Gratia grant will be based on the individual merits of each case and will not form a precedent for that or any other Beneficiary.
Requests for ex-gratia payments should be made in writing to the Charity’s Administrator using the application form detailing what they are for and the amount requested.
Beneficiary Ex-Gratia Grants
Support is available for our current Beneficiary towards one-off needs such as IT equipment for school or musical instruments.
Ex-Gratia Wellbeing Grant - Available to all our Donors
Further support is available to all current donors to support the wellbeing and mental health of eligible children. This is capped at £2000 per child, except in the case of exceptional circumstances in which case a higher Grant may be approved by our Trustees.
The Ex Gratia Wellbeing Grant unfortunately does not cover any diagnostics or assessments.
Many, many thanks for the Ex-Gratia payment for a car to help take Connor (my 13 month old) out and about. Without this much needed and much appreciated financial help, I would have felt extremely isolated and would not have been able to take up the council offer of nursery care 2 afternoons a week, providing me with some respite during this difficult time.
