Action for Trans Health takes a broad view of healthcare, which recognises that there a wide number of things that can impact on an individual's healthcare needs. As such, we place no restrictions on 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. Some things we have funded in the past include:
- appointments with private gender clinics;
- hair removal;
- counselling and therapy;
- rent payments when the money isn't there because of a health issue;
- mobility aids;
- part payment of surgery costs;
- wigs, binders, clothes, etc.
Once applications have been received, a member of Action for Trans Health's administrative staff will anonymise the application text and pass them onto our funding panel who will allocate the funds. We will contact you to let you know whether your application has been successful within two weeks of the funding panel meeting.
