Small Grant

If you are affected by MND you may be eligible for a MND Scotland Small Grant supported by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

MND Scotland’s Small Grant, supported by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, can award sums of up to £1,000 to people affected by MND across Scotland.

The Small Grant can be used to cover a range of costs associated with the illness.

More than one application can be made but £1,000 is the current lifetime limit. Here are some examples of Small Grants which have been awarded before:

  • 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
  • the drafting and registration of Powers of Attorney
  • dog walking
  • help with utility bills.

"It gives me peace of mind knowing our dog is being walked regularly and is having fun, like we had together in the old days." - used for a professional dog walker
