Chris Westwood Charity

We give grants for mobility equipment to children and young people under the age of 25 who live within 50 miles of Stourbridge.

Examples of what the charity has given funding towards:

  • Special exercise equipment, tricycles, walkers, and standing frames, to assist in regaining and maintaining mobility.
  • Wheelchairs, special mobility chairs, support seating, special car seats, special beds, and lifting equipment, to improve the quality of life.
  • Vision equipment, sensory facilities, special safety sleep systems, and equipment for special schools which may be for a specific individual, or for use by a group of young people.

Last updated on 1 April 2019

Who is eligible?

  • The child or young person must be under the age of 25 years.
  • They must live in Stourbridge or the surrounding areas. For practical reasons, we have defined this as living within a radius of 50 miles from Stourbridge.

How to apply?

The charity asks that people write a covering letter explaining why the grant is needed, and the details of the equipment proposed. The charity also needs a supporting letter from a suitable professional person detailing the person's medical condition. Visit the website for a full list of what the covering letter should include: http://chriswestwoodcharity.weebly.com/grant-applications.html

Once we have received all the required information we try to make a decision and let you know the outcome within 24 to 48 hours.

Please note if your application is successful, the charity will pay a cheque to the supplier of the mobility equipment.
