The Charity Service - Cinderella Home Fund

The Charity Service - Chronicle Cinderella Home Fund is available for individuals or organisations to support the costs of respite care and support (including but not limited to the provision of holidays) for the benefit of children and young people under the age of 25 who are sick, convalescent, have special educational needs or are disadvantaged for any other reason. The respite care and support should provide a positive experience for the young person and/or provide a beneficial short period of rest for the young person’s carers and family.

We will normally only fund respite care and support where the family lacks the resources to pay for the respite care and support themselves, or where the local authority are unable to make such provision.

Please note: Individual applications MUST be completed, and submitted, by a supporting Sponsor such as a Social Worker, GP, Teacher or other professional person.

The maximum amount of funding available for an Individual application is £1,000.

The maximum amount of funding for a Group application is £3,000 (although our average grant tends to be around £1,000).

Grants are available to residents within Greater Manchester, East Lancashire, North East Cheshire and North West Derbyshire.
