Applying for a Grant
Small grants can be made for items which are for any child in Scotland with JIA and which will help with every day activities, school work, homework etc and will improve the life of the child with JIA. The fund is for children up to the age of 16 with JIA who would benefit from financial assistance in order to improve their quality of life. A supporting statement from a member of the local rheumatology team is required detailing why the item is needed. The maximum award is £500 although larger grants may be considered in extenuating circumstances.
The applicant’s parent/carer can download the form below. Please complete it and either send to your local rheumatology team member for them to add a supporting statement, or send it, along with the statement directly to SNAC.
The information required from the relevant local rheumatology team member is:
- confirmation of the child’s details including diagnosis.
- confirmation that the item/service requested is relevant and required as a result of having JIA (or resultant/associated condition).
- if the request is for a therapy/alternative therapy which is not available via the NHS then confirmation that it is a recognised therapy and not counter-productive to the patient
- their signature
