If I contribute to the cost of the equipment – say by providing £2000 towards a £4000 wheelchair - will it reduce my wait time on the waiting list? We aim to provide equipment to applicants who have been on our waiting list for the longest time, but the wait time is also dependent on a variety of factors (see question above). We encourage families to apply to several charities as well as my AFK. If an applicant is able to receive funds from a combination of sources (family contribution and grants from other charities), it does mean it is likely we can supply that equipment more quickly. This is because, in many cases, it is more viable for us to approach a potential funder if we are asking for a smaller sum of money than the total cost of the equipment.
