Below are some frequently asked questions about the Grant. If your question isn’t answered here, then please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help.

Hospital Transport

Please be aware that a service called Transport Plus exists to assist you with subsidised hospital transport.  If you are eligible for this and able to claim it, it will make it more likely that we will be a able to assist with the cost of more journeys.  Taxis can be very expensive and so any assistance we can provide to assist with these costs will not go as far.

Frequently asked questions

Anybody can apply, as long as their permanent address is in Hempnall and they have lived in the village for over one year. In the case of children, the application form must be completed by an adult. Importantly, the Secretary or a trustee can be contacted on someone else’s part if appropriate.
