The CCAA Small Grant Awards are for children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis 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 all they can, despite the daily suffering they face.
Educational support for children with arthritis.
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 children with arthritis.
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 with arthritis.
To be given to older children and young people going into further education/college/university, towards books, equipment, additional courses etc
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.
