Small Grant Awards

The CCAA Small Grants are for children and young adults with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) to help with their educational and recreational needs. Our grants have helped many children in the past to help them achieve their dreams and aspirations. We want to help children with JIA to become all they can be and achieve everything they desire, despite the daily suffering they face.

The small grant application form has recently moved online, so please read through it carefully and complete all the sections required before applying. 



Educational Support for additional needs (up to 18 years old) 

To support children and young people in their education. The grant should not be used to supplement failed support through the educational system, but has been designed to give support in areas that these young people may be disadvantaged in due to their arthritis.

Recreational support for leisure/sport outside of school (up to 18 years old)

To support children and young people in their sporting or leisure activities outside of the educational system as many children with arthritis miss out on these activities.


Further Education Award for young people (ages 16 – 25 years old)

To be given to older children and young people going into further education/college/university, towards books, equipment, additional courses etc. 

The Vicky Cox award was named after the daughter of our Patron, Caroline Cox. You can read about Caroline’s journey as a parent of JIA on our stories page.

Please Note: The young person should apply for themselves and we will require written details about why they would like the grant and what they would use it for.
