Grants and Support Word version 

1. Overview

When a person has been turned down for statutory funding, financial assistance and other forms of support are often available from grant-giving organisations. This guide includes some general information on a range of Scottish and UK based trust funds. Some of them require applications to be made by a third party such as a social worker or advice professional. It should be noted that all grants are discretionary and subject to available funding.
