In September 2016, Trustees agreed funding for additional equipment at 5 of our existing Karten Centres. Successful UK Centres were: Action for Blind People Bristol; Aspire; Jewish Care; Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation, and the Centre for Deaf Blind People in Israel was also supported. In addition Trustees agreed to establish 3 new Karten Centres. The Daisy Chain Project and Motor Neurone Disease Association in the UK and Shalva in Israel.
Trustees will meet in March 2017 to consider the next round of applications. Deadlines for completed applications to be with Dawn (UK) and Debbie (Israel) is 20 January 2017. If you are planning on submitting an application please ensure we are aware as soon as possible as this will enable us to support you as effectively as possible.
