Throughout the year, we raise money to help trans people who for whatever reason cannot access healthcare through the NHS in a reasonable amount of time. We know that the trans healthcare system is pretty broken, and that the people who need support will usually outweigh our ability to fundraise. Because of this, we use this application form to work out who faces the most barriers to getting healthcare through the regular ways. .
Action for Trans Health takes a broad view of health. We know there are a wide number of things that can effect your healthcare, and so we don't have any rules about what the money can be used for. We do ask that if the money is being used to access medication which will be needed long-term, that the applicant has thought about how to secure the long-term supply after the grant money has been spent.
Please note that we tend to give out small grants. The average grant is typically between £200 and £400. The largest grant we have given away previously has been £1500.
Once completed forms have been sent to us, a member of Action for Trans Health's staff will anonymise the form by removing any information that could be identifying. Then this will be passed onto our funding panel who will decide where the funds go. We will contact you to let you know whether you have been given any money within two weeks of the funding panel meeting.
The deadline for this funding round is 17th August 2017.
