Guidelines for Applying for Funding Assistance from the Ulverscroft Foundation

The Ulverscroft Foundation supports projects which will have a positive effect on the quality of life of visually impaired people (blind and partially sighted) or people with a print disability.

Our funding is channelled via recognised organisations which help visually impaired people, for example, libraries, hospitals, clinics, schools and colleges; social and welfare organisations.

Applications should be made in writing (we do not have an application form). Make your proposal as detailed as possible. Include details of your current service to visually impaired people, if any, and how the proposed project will be integrated or enhanced. If possible, please give an estimate of how many visually impaired people use/will use your service. Also include the amount of funding obtained to date, if any, and the names of other organisations to whom you have applied.

We ask that organisations send a copy of their latest annual report and accounts with their application.

Our trustees meet quarterly to consider appeals in January , April, July and October each year; deadlines are:
