Transplant grants

Transplant grants are up to £250 and help to support people living with cystic fibrosis (CF) with the costs associated with attending a transplant assessment and having a transplant.



What are transplant grants?

These grants of up to £250 are to support people living with CF, and those who care for them, with the costs of travel or accommodation when attending a transplant assessment and having a transplant.

How do I apply?

Please read the guidance on this page before applying. Once you have done this, please download and complete the application form.

Download the application form

The application form can be returned by email or post.

How much can I apply for?

Transplants grants are for a maximum of £250. An individual living with CF (the applicant) can apply for two transplant grants - one to cover costs associated with a transplant assessment and one to cover costs associated with a transplant. Applications can be made up to six months after assessment or transplant.

Does the application form need a supporting statement (endorsement)?

Yes. The supporting statement needs to be completed by a member of the applicant’s CF team (the endorser) and either signed by them or emailed to us from their professional email account.

If this is proving difficult please contact us.

When will I receive the grant?

Transplant grants are processed weekly. If the application is successful, payment will be made to the bank account provided within 10 days of receiving a complete application.

Who should complete the application form?

The applicant, their parent/carer, partner or a member of their CF team can complete the form. Regardless of who completes the form, the ‘applicant’ is always the person living with cystic fibrosis. If the applicant is over 18, they need to be made aware that the application is being made on their behalf.

I have a question. Can I speak to someone?

Yes. Please call our Helpline on 0300 373 1000 or email helpline@cysticfibrosis.org.uk to discuss any aspect of the grants process.
