Service description:
The ACT Foundation (ACT) was formed in 1994 and is registered with the Charity Commission (charity number 1068617).

ACT provides grants to individuals and other charities, principally in the UK, with the aim of enhancing the quality of life for people in need, particularly those who have a physical or mental disability or the aged.

Our grants generally fall into the following areas:

- Building - funding modifications to homes (where a Disabled Facilities Grant ("DFG") has already been awarded), charities, special schools, hospices etc.
- Equipment - provision of specialist wheelchairs, other mobility aids and equipment including medical equipment and technology to assist independent living
- Respite – help towards the cost of short-term respite breaks at registered respite centres

Our income is derived from an investment portfolio which includes a wholly owned subsidiary, Basepoint Centres Ltd. We receive many more applications than we can fund and have to prioritise our grants towards those most in need. Where it is deemed that the beneficiary, the beneficiary’s family or the applying charity/organisation are able to provide the equipment from their own resources we regret that the application will not be considered.
