What is FACT?

The Frederick Andrew Convalescent Trust was established in 1916 following the death of Lincoln Solicitor, Frederick Andrew, with one aim; to provide women with financial assistance during times of convalescence.

Since its inception, the trust has continued to provide grants and is still focused on providing working women and those that have retired from active work with the means to convalesce.

The Frederick Andrew Convalescent Trust understands that it must change to suit the requirements of today’s women and offers grants of up to £1000 for convalescence and domenstic help and up to £600 for therapy, to those of all ages, from all backgrounds and with almost any medical condition.

For details on how to apply for one of our grants please complete the assessment form below.

    Privacy Statement



Following massive and life changing surgery the grant I received from FACT was a considerable help to my recovery. I was enabled to contribute to the costs of domestic help after my time in hospital, and, a little later, to take some recuperative time at a fully-catered centre which was able to meet my particular needs. The generosity of the grant certainly helped my return to health, and for this I am very grateful.

Margaret, Lincoln.

Illness hits you like a bolt from the blue and, with an uncertain future, spending money on anything but the bare essentials is out of the question. The FACT enabled me to have a break after a major operation when I would otherwise have had to sit alone at home. It gave me something to look forward to while I was recovering. The application was easy – just a simple form to complete and my GP approved it without hesitation.
