We provide financial support to a number of carefully chosen Legacy Partners. Their work is aligned with at least one of of our “4 life themes” which are broad-reaching and we support many activities within each.

Our aim is to help our Partners build their capacity and sustainability and through their work, bring about ‘transformational’ change in the way care is provided. 

In addition if you are a UK registered charity and are planning to speak to us regarding a Capital Grant (£1M or more) you should consider which theme you believe best fits your project. Below is a brief description of each as well as some examples of our Legacy Partners and their services/outputs to help you.

With this theme we are looking to support Charity Partners to provide access to community facilities offering support services that maintain, improve and advance the health and general welfare of people living with disabilities and/or long-term illnesses.

Grants will support:

  • information providing, guidance, advice, training and moral and emotional support to individuals and their families and carers
  • centres that provide clinical services including therapies and medical provision (e.g. physiotherapy, oxygen therapy, Pilates, music & movement and art therapy etc.) access to counselling and early intervention services
  • independent hospices and care homes

Our Partners tell us that people living with disabilities and/or long-term illnesses would prefer to live at home and as independently as possible.  We fully support this and over the years have established relationships with many charities who, with our funding, have been able to make this happen. Together we have been able to change the day to day lives of people and support those who wish to remain living in their own home for as long as is practically possible. 

Grants will support:

  • safe and independent access around the home
  • equipment to aid getting in and out of chairs, beds and bathrooms easily and independently
  • communication and access to the external community
  • people to go outside, use community facilities and generally enjoy and feel part of family life

Through this theme we wish to recognise the fantastic and hugely important work undertaken by the family care giver.  These people are the backbone of our society and the physical, emotional and financial consequences for them can be overwhelming without support.

Our Charity Partners provide facilities in the UK where either the person living with a disability or illness or their caregiver or, in some cases, the whole family, can go to access leisure activities or simply enjoy themselves relaxing or socialising with others in a similar situation.

Taking a short break from the responsibility of caring for someone in the knowledge they are safe and being well looked after has a hugely positive and immediate impact on all concerned. 

Transition helps people with disabilities develop the skills necessary to obtain meaningful employment or secure a home for life. Our funding under this theme will help our Legacy Partners work with individuals who aspire to achieve a greater degree of independence.

Grants will support:

  • training, coaching and personal development to promote independent living and/or support to help people into paid work, vocational services or volunteering
  • affordable housing and/or supported living in the local community
  • day services supporting people with general life skills e.g. computing, cooking, arts and crafts
