BWBA 50/50 Grant Scheme
The BWBA 50/50 Grant Scheme offers grants to individual bowlers to buy a bowls wheelchair to help them to continue bowling or to start bowling. It will provide 50% of the cost of a bowls wheelchair. The Scheme includes chairs that are to be motorised. Individuals must be buying the chair for their own use. Bowls wheelchairs should meet the BWBA’s criteria for Purpose Designed Bowls Wheelchairs (PDBWs) at the time of purchase.
The BWBA has set aside a certain amount of its funds for this Grant Scheme. Applications will be assessed on a ‘first come first served’ basis until the allocated funds are used up.
Applicants will have to complete an application form (see above) and will be expected to meet 50% of the cost of the chair themselves. If successful, the grant has to be used within one calendar month of being approved and the chair will be the property of the applicant.
