16+ Assistance Fund

Transitioning to adult services, when a young person with Dravet Syndrome reaches the age of 16 and beyond, encompasses significant changes in the organisation of care for your child. Our 16+ assistance fund is intended to fill the gap which often occurs in providing support for adults with Dravet Syndrome. 

The fund is available for families living with one or more adults with Dravet Syndrome, who are aged 16 and over. Any items of equipment or assistance that will improve the life of the adult with Dravet Syndrome will be considered. Families can apply for one item or one project (which may require several items). The limit on each application is usually £1,000 per year per Dravet adult. 

How to apply:

As with all our assistance funds, the applications are not means tested, although a  letter confirming a Dravet Syndrome diagnosis is required and each application is assessed to see whether the needs are being met elsewhere.
