Eligibility

Enable grants provide support for disabled people who are in financial hardship to obtain specialised equipment that cannot be supplied by the NHS, Education or Social Services.  Beneficiaries must live in Merseyside, Cheshire (west of M6), North Wales or North Shropshire.  Our grants are discretionary and we are unable to meet every request.  

We fund specialised equipment for:
  • Mobility aids, wheelchairs, buggies, hoists, trikes, etc. 
  • Specialised beds and sleep systems, postural chairs, seating and car seats  
  • Sensory equipment 
  • Communication aids, specialised software, specialised alarms 
  • Medical equipment, support wear 
We don’t fund:
  • Holidays, respite care or childcare  
  • Reimbursements for purchases already made or where a statutory agency has the responsibility to pay for the item needed
  • Lease or purchase of vehicles for individuals
  • Toys & computer consoles (Wii, Xbox) PCs laptops or tablets (unless proven to be for sole use of beneficiaries with special or medical needs)
In many cases statutory services, including NHS, local councils and Health Authorities, have an obligation to provide essential equipment for disabled people.  The Steve Morgan Foundation will only consider applications where statutory provision has first been explored and exhausted. 

Health conditions we will consider: 
  • Life threatening conditions for which curative treatment may be feasible but can fail. 
  • Progressive conditions without curative treatment options.
  • Irreversible but non-progressive conditions causing severe disability.
If the application is successful, who owns the equipment?
If your application is successful, the beneficiary becomes the owner of the equipment if the cost of the equipment is less than £15,000. Over this amount the Steve Morgan Foundation reserves the right to retain ownership. 

You are responsible for the insurance and maintenance of the equipment in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations. 

Essential Criteria: 
  • Beneficiary lives in Merseyside, North Wales, Cheshire (west of M6) or North Shropshire.
  • Beneficiary is a UK citizen or has a legal right to live in the UK and recourse to public funds.
  • The equipment is for the sole use of the beneficiary in their main residence.
