Care Tech – Financial Support

Financial Support

We understand that finances can be a barrier to using more technology within services and for individuals. Here we offer information on how to get discounts when going digital.

VAT Free Tech

It is possible to get assistive technology VAT-free if you are “chronically sick or disabled” as stated by HMRC. You can read more about VAT-free goods here.

You can fill in a short form, which you send to your supplier, to apply for VAT-free devices when buying assistive technology for yourself here.

Social Tariff Broadband

Several broadband providers have started to offer social tariffs to help people as the cost of living continues to increase. If you are on universal credit or pension credit you are likely to be eligible for an affordable broadband around £15-£20 per month.

Alliance Self-Management Fund Grants

The Alliance regularly offer funding opportunities for small projects supporting individuals with self-management tools.
