The Ecas board made the difficult decision to suspend our grants fund as of 16 March 2020 due to a sharp fall in portfolio value and uncertainty regarding future income. The Board of Directors will look to reintroduce the fund when Ecas’ financial position allows.
Through this grants fund we helped people buy furniture, white goods and electronic goods; pay for a holiday; meet student fees; and more.
Thanks to the Ecas grant we were able to source and pay for VR (virtual reality) equipment for my son Keir to use daily at home. After first using the headset at the Sick Kids Friends Foundation it was amazing to see how it helped him to get exercise. By exercising while seated, the severe pain that his condition creates is greatly eased. It has been a fantastic resource and helped him so much. We are so thankful and every single day we are seeing the results.

Thank you Ecas for supporting us to go on a holiday. The cottage has been great – wheelchair accessible with amazing views around.

Eilidh loves her trike. Being out and about together with the rest of the family on theirs has made a huge difference and is fantastic exercise for her.
