The Victoria Convalescent Trust (VCT) makes grants for short breaks for the purpose of convalescence and periods of recuperative and respite care.
Incorporated into the VCT is a much smaller fund for the purpose of making grants for essential equipment such as white goods, essential household items, contributions towards mobility aids and other specialist equipment. Priority for funding is given to those with a severe and enduring disability, physical or mental illness and to carers. Due to the high level of demand it is unlikely that the trust will be able to offer assistance to anyone who does not meet these criteria.
