We have a number of welfare grants available to help support people with cystic fibrosis (CF) and their families through challenging times.
Support with an immediate financial crisis
Support with basic essentials this winter
We’re providing a one-off, short term grant to protect the health of adults and children with CF who are struggling to afford basic essentials like food this winter.
Support to buy essential household appliances
We can provide a grant if there is an urgent need for an essential household appliance to keep someone with CF as well as possible.
Support with home care
Support with funeral costs
Support with physical or mental health and wellbeing
Support with holiday costs
We offer Rest & Relax grants of up to £450 for adults and children with cystic fibrosis to take a holiday, trip or short break when they’re going through a difficult time, supporting their mental and physical health.
Support with prescription costs
We offer one-off grants to fund the cost of a Prescription Prepayment Certificate for prescriptions. Please ensure that you have first checked if you are eligible for free prescriptions before applying for a grant.
Support with education
The Joseph Levy Education Fund helps adults with cystic fibrosis over the age of 18 with the costs of higher education or other professional qualifications including vocational training. The Fund also accepts applications from people with cystic fibrosis aged 16 or 17 who are not moving into formal further education and who wish instead to undertake vocational training.
For further information please contact our Helpline.
Family Action also offers educational grants to individuals over the age of 14, to help with the cost of further education.
Support with costs related to transplant
