Falcare is a non-profit company that helps those with learning difficulties live as independently as possible in their own homes by offering support with everything from personal care to finding work opportunities. Falcare’s clients are supported by a team of committed support workers.

Managing Director Sue Miner explored grant funding for Falcare with Access to Finance’s Jackie George, with discussions ultimately focusing on the National Lottery Awards for All scheme, which offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support community-driven organisations.

After working together on the application, we were delighted to receive a note from Sue to let us know that Falcare had been allocated the maximum amount.

“Please be one of the first to know that we have just been awarded £10,000 from Awards for All,” said Sue. “I can’t begin to thank you for your help along the way. You gave me confidence to do something I would never have dreamed as possible.”
