Support grants are available to fund many things that would not normally be covered by statutory services (see Appendix 3 in the DEBRA Support Grant Policy). As we offer a personal service where our Community Support Managers get to know you and your needs, we try not to place rigid restrictions on what your funding is used for.

We have limited funds and so priorities are set in line with the DEBRA Community Support Grant Policy. Any support grant needs to meet the criteria laid out in the policy. Your application will be assessed and prioritised against these criteria by your Community Support Manager.

Given the wide range of products and services a support grant may cover, we cannot give any endorsement of products or make specialist assessments for equipment. However, the team have extensive experience and knowledge and will usually be able to give some guidance.
