Maybe it all needs sorting out, as for what I can see fund raising that goes to HDA just lays wages, does not seem to give much back to the community.
I understand not trying to cause any problems maybe people do not realise what they can and can't do with regard to using the charity logo etc . Branches can keep there money locally support groups can not Branches have to produce their own set of accounts and be accountable for the money . I also am aware that grants can be applied for .

GRANTS = from the local Branch or from HQ?

Any idea what Grants cover? Is there a "list" of what grants can cover?

I think branches get requests for grants from the SHDA am think a request can be made for anything smoking device say out bedding etc I think at the end of the financial year any funds that have not been given out in grants goes to head office and important .

Ah am I confusing grants out from the branch with grants in ?

Hi all

The welfare grant (administered from Head Office) is available to help people who are living with HD. It is a limited amount, with a restricted budget each month. A maximum amount of £350.00 from the welfare grant budget may be given in any 12 month period.

The welfare grant is a one off payment which will benefit the person who is symptomatic of HD. Applications can be made through the SHDA or other professional for things that can reduce risk or enhance the personsí quality of life. We would not normally assist if the request is for something that should be provided by statutory services e.g. chairs, shower, holiday etc. We are unable to pay toward debts, funeral expenses or travel.

Grants from branches of the HDA are from the funds which they raise locally. Each branch will be different and some may not have a grants system. Applications normally go to branches via the SHDA. Again there is a maximum amount of £350.00 in a 12 month period (some branches may set their own cap lower than this depending on funds available).

I hope this helps, Ruth.
