grants for our members
As an Armed Forces charity, our mission allows us to offer our Members financial assistance with the additional costs and hardships of disability.
In the last year we have:
- Provided 1,194 individual grants to 771 recipients to help with the additional costs of disability
We regularly contribute to the provision of wheelchairs, stair lifts, and home and garden adaptations so that Members can remain as mobile and independent as possible.
We consider grant applications on an individual basis - based on your specific need. We have issued disability grants in the past for mobility aids such as stair-lifts, scooters, wheelchairs and walking frames.
As one of many Military charities, Blesma is unique in the fact that Blesma can also help you with grants towards the cost of re-decorating your home or maintaining your garden. We do this because we understand that wheelchairs and scooters can easily damage your door frames and skirting boards no matter how careful you are.
We also recognise that it can be dangerous to climb a ladder to paint those difficult to reach places when you have lost a limb or use of a limb. We also understand that it can be difficult to tend your flower beds and mow your lawns. Using grants we can help you with the costs of employing a decorator or gardener to do this work for you
