We often get asked how individual hospice service users can get funding for magical technology for themselves to use at home. Whilst Lifelites only donates equipment to children's hospice services not to individuals, the following section outlines a number of resources to help families and individuals find the funding they need.
Family Factsheet on Assistive Technology - signposting families to organisations and resources to help provide information on assistive technology
Disability Grants - signposting families to sources of funding for equipment for individuals
