More than one application can be made but £1500 is the current lifetime limit. Here are some examples of Equipment and Adaptations Grants that have been awarded before:
"The grant made a massive difference. Without it, Brian would still be sleeping on a mattress on the floor. As he now has to sleep with his head raised he is getting better quality sleep."

Please note: We cannot award grants retrospectively. This includes costs that have been incurred prior to MND Scotland approving a grant application. In the case of applications to purchase equipment, a supporting statement from an appropriate allied health professional, such as an Occupational Therapist, will be required to confirm the equipment is both appropriate and safe to use. Except for home adaptations being carried out by the local council, two estimates will be required for any adaptations commissioned by the applicant.
This grant is part-funded by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
