The Ulverscroft Foundation supports projects which will have a positive effect on the quality of life of visually impaired people (blind and partially sighted).
Their funding is channelled via recognised organisations which help the visually impaired, for example, libraries, hospitals, clinincs, schools and colleges, and social and welfare organisations.
Applications can be made in writing by downloading, completing and posting an application form or, alternatively, by using the online application form. They also accept email applications. Make your proposal as detailed as possible. Include details of your current service to the visually impaired, if any, and how it will be improved or enhanced by the proposed project. If possible, please give an estimate of how many visually impaired people use/will use your service. Also include the amount of funding obtained to date, if any, and the names of other organisations to whom you have applied.
They ask that organisations send a copy of their latest annual report and accounts with their application.
Application Form: Apply in writing - see guidance.
Deadline: Trustees meet quarterly to consider appeals in January, April, July and October each year; deadlines for appeals are the fifteenth day of the previous month.
