Grants for you

Grant for Individuals

Barnwood’s grants for individuals are now open.

If you live in Gloucestershire and you have a disability or a long-term mental health challenge, you can apply for a Barnwood Trust individual grant.

We welcome applications for funding towards certain household items, to support your wellbeing, or for a mobility aid.

If you are eligible and cannot afford it yourself, you can apply to us for:

  • For your home: a cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, bed or flooring
  • For your wellbeing: a television, laptop or tablet, an online course, home exercise equipment or materials for a hobby.
  • For your mobility: a riser recliner, mobility scooter or disability aid

If you would like help with your online grant application call us on freephone 0800 4220404 (Tuesday to Thursday, 10.00am – 4.00pm, except bank holidays).

 Please note:  We will do our best to get back to you within 4 weeks of receiving your individual grant application. All items applied for are subject to availability and we are unable to fund activities that go against government safety guidelines or for ongoing household expenses.  We are unable to fund items twice or to fund items already paid for.  There are value limits for the individual grants we award in a 12-month rolling cycle. Any grant award will stay open for 3 months only.  Barnwood is unable to fund items available via the council or NHS.  We may pause this individual grant to manage the demand, if needed.
