Fund description:

The Edward Gostling Foundation provides grants to registered charities that work to enhance the quality of life of people in need in the UK and, particularly, those on a low income who have a physical and/or mental disability or long-term illness.

Applications must support one of the Foundation’s four themes:

Health & wellbeing: support for community-based services that maintain, improve and advance the health and welfare of people living with disabilities and/or long-term illnesses

Independent living at home: funding to support people who wish to remain living in their own home for as long as possible

Respite: support for charities providing facilities in the UK where either the person living with a disability and/or long-term illness or a family care-giver can go to access sports and leisure activities

Transition: grants that support people through education, training or personal development into employment, long-term volunteering or other meaningful day time activity, leading to independence, affordable housing and/or supported living

Grants are made for specific projects. The Foundation prioritises its Small Grants programme (grants up to £5,000); there is also a Large Grants programme (mostly between £10,000 and £50,000).
