Funding for Projects for Individuals
Communication Matters is aware that it can be very difficult for a person to apply for financial assistance.
All too often, individuals are barred from applying and applications can only be made through charitable or community-based organisations. However, the organisations listed below do offer funding to individuals.
Insurance for Communication Aids
Regardless of where your communication aid came from, you may need to insure it against loss, theft or accidental damage. Check with the provider of your equipment before taking out any insurance.
Suppliers and manufacturers do not provide insurance, only extended warranties. These warranties cover repair, labour and return shipping. Some suppliers include accidental damage, but not all, so check with your provider at the time of purchase. The warranties do not cover fire, theft or loss – these can only be covered by an insurance policy, which suppliers or manufacturers cannot provide under the Financial Services Act.
