ACT provides grants to individuals and other charities, principally in the UK, with the aim of enhancing the quality of life for people in need, (specifically the mentally and physically disabled).
Grants generally fall into the following areas:
- Building - funding modifications to homes, schools, hospices etc.
- Equipment - provision of specialised wheelchairs, other mobility aids and equipment including medical equipment to assist independent living.
- Financial assistance - towards the cost of short-term respite breaks at a registered respite centre.
Projects that intend to be a platform for continuing services will be expected to demonstrate sustainability. ACT would be concerned to be a sole funder of projects that require ongoing support. Check website below for exclusions.
Applications are welcomed for grants from all sections of the community and decisions on prioritisation are made having regard to funding levels and never on grounds of gender, age or race.
Decisions on grants of up to £50,000 are normally made within one month of receiving your application. Decisions on grants over £50,000 can take up to three months.
If the application is for an emergency a faster timescale can be requested and ACT will do their best to assist.
