Do you have a need for a specific type of equipment, scooter or ramp system that will improve your quality of life and increase your personal independence? Are you unable to afford this?
The Kinsmen Foundation of BC funds a wide range of new and used equipment and will consider the most obscure devices if it will assist you in your quality of life, personal mobility, and independence.
Examples of the most frequently funded equipment include:
- Power wheelchairs
- Manual wheelchairs
- Custom orthotics
- Specialized wheelchair seating systems
- Portable lift system
To apply, you will need to provide more information about your disability, why you can’t afford this on your own and if you have explored other avenues of funding. You will also need to provide two or more quotes from different vendors for the equipment you are requesting the funds for (two quotes for new equipment, one quote for used equipment), and a letter of support and/or assessment from a health care practitioner such as a medical doctor, occupational therapist or physiotherapist.
If you have questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
