The Metcalfe Smith Trust

We make grants to improve the quality of life or independence of adults or children with a physical disability, long term illness or a mental health difficulty who live within the metropolitan district of Leeds. We will provide grants for the purchase of equipment, or pay for course fees leading to greater independence or employment, or provide a respite break which enable any of the above.

In the past we have given grants towards the cost of holidays and day trips; an exercise machine and transport costs and sensory toys and therapy materials for a child with autism and behavioural problems.
