Medical support transforming lives

Applying for a Grant

We hope to make applying for a grant fairly painless and fairly quick! However, it will help us a great deal if you could complete the form below when applying for a grant for support within the four areas of TVF's focus:

  • Mobility aids – supporting those who suffer from diseases that affect their mobility in both their recreational and rehabilitation needs by providing support where financial constraints do not allow the private purchase of mobility aids. 
  • Accessible transport – helping residents of the London Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston suffering from any medical condition that renders conventional transport either inaccessible or inappropriate.
  • Medical Toolkit Grants and Elective Bursaries – supporting widening participation in medicine by awarding UK students studying at UK universities Toolkit Grants for the purchase books, medical instruments and travel costs to placements and Elective Bursaries with a contribution towards the cost of overseas travel to electives.
  • Medical Assistance – supporting individuals and organisations with grants for medical equipment or support which is not funded by the State or readily available on the NHS. We  consider applications on a case by case basis and have funded a wide range of support including a specialist bed and wheelchair powerpack for individuals, a sensory bath hoist for a charity and accessible transport costs for an outing for clients of another charity to name just a few.
