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.
Support is available for our current Beneficiary towards one-off needs such as IT equipment for school or musical instruments.
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.
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.
