All requests for Bader Grants will be reviewed with potentially successful applications being referred to the Grant Committee for consideration.
Depending on the nature of the request, the Bader Grant Scheme may help towards or provide the equipment, training, services, further education or other practical support.
The Douglas Bader Foundation is a small charity with limited resources and our grants will reflect this but we hope that the contribution we make will go some way towards helping the recipient to achieve their goal in the “can do” spirit of Sir Douglas.
We have recently introduced grants in the name of Joan Bader who died in December 2015. These Lady Bader Memorial Grants will be allocated at the DBF’s discretion to applicants who we feel reflect her own lifetime interests and achievements. Special Awards in her name may also be allocated in individual circumstances.
Please note that we are unable to support applications for living aids.
