Financial grants for MACS families
Making life easier for a visually impaired child can be costly for families. Our grants can assist families with these costs and make a positive difference to the lives of the children we support.
With our help, people with MACS conditions have access to items and activities which create opportunities for independence, help them cope with day to day living and enable them to get involved in a range of fun activities! 95% of MACS grant recipients said it enabled them or their child to do something they wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to do.
Recent grants have helped to purchase Braillers, talking microwaves and mobile phones, music therapy sessions and bike adaptations.
I was able to be part of the GB paraclimbing team, competing in domestic competitions and coming 4th in the country for womens VI category.
We had a grant for an Apex Braillenote which we would not have been able to afford otherwise. It is my daughter's most treasured possession and a lifeline for her.
