16+ Assistance Fund

Restrictions related to COVID-19 means there's even more need for items of equipment or assistance for people aged 16+ with Dravet Syndrome.  

Families are having to adjust to adult children returning from residential homes, day care facilities closing or operating reduced hours, activities being exclusively home-based and more.  

Our 16+ assistance fund is available to fund any items of equipment or assistance that will improve the life of a 16+ year old with Dravet Syndrome, particularly through these challenging times.  

Examples of items we can fund include: computer devices to help with home based entertainment, adult strollers to facilitate exercise whilst maintaining social distancing, and garden equipment to facilitate outdoor entertainment and exercise.  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. This fund is non-means tested and families can apply at any time.
