Assistance Grants

Our assistance grants are available to support families with a child diagnosed with cancer or a brain tumour in Norfolk & Suffolk.

Our assistance grants are available to families that meet the following criteria:
  • The child and their immediate family must live in Norfolk or Suffolk
  • Our grants are for children aged between birth and the day before their 18th birthday
  • The child must have the diagnosis of a childhood cancer or brain tumour, or be under investigation for either of these.

There are two grants currently available:

  • Assistance Grant – up to £500 – available immediately to all families that meet the above criteria. Discretionary follow up grants may be available in cases of additional hardship.
  • Palliative Assistance Grant – £1000 –  a one off grant for families where the child has been placed on to palliative rather than curative treatment

The online application form is short but you will need to provide a photo or scan of the following items to verify the information you provide:

  • A hospital letter confirming the diagnosis (if possible) and containing the name and address of the child
  • A copy of another letter, or driving licence, containing the name and address of the parent above

There is an option to take and send a photo of the documents using your phone’s camera, or you can upload a photo you have already taken. You can also upload common files such as PDF.

Please email info@finnbarsforce if you need any further information or assistance.
