Practical solutions for care and disability needs
If you or someone in your family has care needs, adjustments could be made to your home to make life easier. Our care and disability grants that can be used for home adaptions, as well as equipment and technology.
But if there doesn’t seem to be a piece of equipment you can buy off the shelf, we have a partnership with Remap who can adapt an off-the-shelf product or invent something entirely unique just for you.
Care and disability grants for social activities
And if you’re a carer, we want to support you too. We know that carers shoulder a huge responsibility. If you’re looking after someone else every day, there are times when you need to rest. We can pay for you to have some time away. This could be a social activity you love or just time to take it easy and recover.
Our care and disability grants could pay for another carer to come in while you’re away. Or we could pay for the person you’re looking after to stay in a care home until you’re back. And if you’re the person with care needs, we can help fund activities you enjoy. We know that socially inclusive lifestyle is important for physical and mental wellbeing.
Care needs can be challenging, but they shouldn’t feel unmanageable, and at Foothold, we can help you make sure they don’t. If you or your partner is an engineer and you have less than £50,000 in savings, get in touch.
