Blatchington Court Trust supports children and young people who are blind or partially sighted by providing equipment to aid their visual impairment.

Applications will be considered for children and young people who are registered or are registrable as blind (SSI) or partially sighted (SI) up to and including the age of 29 years and who reside permanently in Sussex. All items supplied through our grant scheme are for home use only (not for school or college), unless there has been a special arrangement between the Trust and the local Authority’s teams of qualified Teachers for Visual Impairment (QTVI’s).All applications must be supported by a QTVI or another professional if the applicant is over 16.

Successful applicants will be asked for a contribution towards the grant – generally, this is 10% for most equipment and 20% for iPads or 50% if the child is under the age of 7. However, this can vary at the discretion of the Trustees and will be different when equipment is joint funded by the local authority/sensory needs service and Blatchington Court Trust.
