Emergency Grant Application
About the Grant
Eligible families or a social worker that is working with the family may apply for an emergency grant.
This can be to assist families who are in exceptional circumstances and needing temporary assistance to help pay for rent, transport, vehicle repairs, clothing or other items at the discretion of the Trust Manager.
This grant must be used to enhance the life of a child or young person who has a disability.
To be eligible for a grant the child / young person must,
- have a disability that is primarily physical
- be younger than 22 years
- lives in the northern half of the North Island of New Zealand (as defined by the Trust Deed).
- their family has a need for financial assistance.
Applications will be considered within 3 days of the request.
Ethnicity: We request information in the application form about the child / young person's ethnicity because we are required to report not only on the geographical spread of beneficiaries but also to focus on Maori and Pacific communities in order to reduce health inequities.
NB: By submitting this application you consent to the Wilson Home Trust retaining and possibly sharing the information with other parties in order to verify and/or support the application.
