The Bishop Stamer Fund will award small grants, usually up to £500, to individuals who may need extra help or support. Any applicant must be at least 50 years old in order to be considered, but there is a preference towards people who are both elderly and infirm.
Funding can be used to help them or their carers with a specific cost, and is usually award to pay for an item of equipment that may make their life easier, or to provide specific facilities. These facilities should not normally be available through another source, or there should be a waiting list where a delay would cause hardship.
These grants are to be considered a one off grant and should be for items of equipment and not to pay for general nursing provision or care. Grants may also be made to organisations who will make small value purchases, to help individuals.
Some examples of items that may be funded could include a wheelchair, a new bed, grab rails or easy to use taps.
