The Leonardo Trust

Area(s) of Dorset: Dorset
Issues: General
Contact: Andy Bryant, The Leonardo Trust 5 Dunyeats Road Broadstone, BH18 8AA
Email: info@leonardotrust.org
Website: www.leonardotrust.org

The Leonardo Trust is an independent charitable trust set up in 2001 to help people in Dorset who are registered voluntary carers for sick or disabled relatives or friends. Being a full-time carer is hard work and getting time off can be difficult and everyone needs some time to themselves for short periods of rest and relaxation. If finding the money for a few hours extra respite care or to pay for whatever you would like to do to relax is a challenge, we may be able to help you. The Leonardo Trust was originally created by a lady, who herself was a full-time voluntary carer, and has
experienced the challenges and issues faced from caring for someone else, so they really appreciate that having help with certain aspects of life can really make a difference to you and the person you care for. They give modest grant awards for lots of various aspects of a carers life, these include: Funding for short holidays, driving lessons, home improvements, home help, assisted living technologies.

To apply to them all you need to do is complete the application form on the ‘application form’ page on their website. On the application, you’ll need to explain what your needs are and a little bit about yourself, then ask your Social Worker or Healthcare Professional to complete a short reference about your caring situation and submit your application. They treat every application with compassion and understanding. Some applications may require that a member of the Leonardo Team will ask to visit.

The trust has a lovely motto – being a carer doesn’t mean that no-one cares for you, you can Lean on Leonardo!
