Small Grant

If you are living with MND, or caring for someone, you may be eligible for a MND Scotland Small Grant.

Our Small Grant can be used to help cover a range of costs associated with living with MND. 

More than one application can be made but £1,000 is the current lifetime limit. However, if you have already used this amount and are struggling financially at the moment, you can apply again. We will look at applications on a case by case basis. 

Here are some ways our Small Grant may be able to help you: 

  • re-instatement of décor after a wet room or bedroom conversion
  • the hire of specialist equipment when on holiday
  • wheelchair accessories such as waterproof clothing
  • the adaptation of clothing, e.g. replacing zips with Velcro
  • dog walking
  • help with utility bills

Please note: We cannot award grants retrospectively. This includes costs that have been incurred prior to MND Scotland approving a grant application.This grant is part-funded by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

If you would like more information before applying below, or need help with your application, please get in touch by emailing us at or call us 0141 332 3903
