Cost-of-Living Grant available to polio survivors

The Fellowship has launched a Cost-of-Living Grant to help polio surviviors cope with the current cost-of-living crisis.

Many members of the British Polio Fellowship are struggling with the cost-of-living, as high inflation pushes up the cost of petrol, energy bills and food. For some it has become increasingly difficult to cope, especially those on a a fixed income.

In response to this crisis, the Fellowship has introduced a new Cost-of-Living Grant which will target polio survivors in genuine need. Anyone struggling, can apply for a one-off grant of up to £300 by contacting the Fellowship's Support Services team by email at or 0800 043 1935. The team will take them through the application process.

In addition to providing financial support, the Fellowship has also lobbied Government for more help for people with long-term health conditions, working with other charities for a louder, collective voice. Kripen Dhrona, Chief Executive of the British Polio Fellowship has co-signed a letter to the Chancellor of the Exchequer (coordinated by the Huntingdon Disease Association) and also signed a petition generated by Age UK.
