SF Group’s Charitable Fund

Grant Sources

Grants are available for charitable organisations undertaking projects to help severely disabled people of all ages living in the Midlands.

Maximum value:  £1,000

Objectives of Fund

The grants are for charitable organisations working with people of all ages with severe disabilities who live in the Midlands.

The programme aims to make life easier for people with severe disabilities by providing equipment and services that are not covered by statutory funds.

Value Notes

Awarding grants is dependent on the availability of funds to the Charity at any given time.

The majority of grants awarded are for around £1,000, although there is no ‘official’ upper limit.

The charity does not give ‘hard cash’ rather it orders and pays for invoiced items where funding has been agreed.

The maximum holiday grant is £1,000 and they are usually UK based.

Match Funding Restrictions

Match funding is not a specified requirement.
