Grants

Our Grants Fund is an essential part of our work to improve the lives of physically disabled people living in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Applications for a grant will normally be processed on a continuous basis and whenever possible, decisions will be given within 8 weeks of receiving the application and associated paperwork.

Subject to certain exclusions, grants can be for anything not covered by statutory sources. Exclusions and eligibility criteria are detailed on the application form.

Please ensure you have read and understood the guidance notes prior to starting your application.

Please note:

  • £750 is the maximum standard grant.   Successful applicants can re-apply after  2 years.
  • Higher grants up to £1,500.  Successful applicants can re-apply after 4 years.

  • Grants above £1,500 will be considered on an exceptional basis.

If you have any further questions please call the Ecas office on 0131 475 2344.
