PSPA Support Grants

PSPA support grants aim to help improve the quality of life for people who are living with or are affected by PSP & CBD.



The support grants can provide a one-off payment of up to £250 to help provide an item or service. Applications will be assessed on the impact the item or service identified, would have on the person living with PSP or CBD, or their carer.

Please note, funding is limited, therefore we can only provide a grant to each individual once a year.

Examples of items and services our support grant could fund include:

  • A communication aid
  • Respite care
  • A mobility aid
  • Counselling sessions

We are not able to fund:

  • Retrospective requests or services
  • Emergency healthcare needs
  • Funeral costs
  • Utility bills
  • Repayment of debt
  • Legal fees
  • Daily living costs

How to apply

Applicants must gain a referral for a grant from a health or social care professional involved in the care of the person affected by PSP or CBD or their carer.

The Support Grant application form and guidance and appendix can be downloaded here. Please note, incomplete application forms will result in the application being delayed whilst further information is requested. Please note we do not fund retrospective requests.

The completed application form should be returned to PSPA, 3rd Floor, Margaret Powell House, 415a Midsummer Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 3BN or emailed to

We aim to process applications within five working days. Once a decision has been made, the applicant and the healthcare professional will be informed.
