I am finally (after 2 years) filling out the Caudwell Trust application for biomedical intervention and AIT. I was going through our outgoings and wasn't sure whether to add in birthdays/christmas?

Has anyone else applied?

glitteryb6 Sun 06-Sep-09 22:02:20

Caulwell childrens charity, great for large donations towards equipment/treatment etc

I did. Bloody awful form, ended up chucking it across the room in a small ball!
Yes, I put in birthdays.

I met him once.

Lovely lovely guy .... but a dubious taste in women grin

how detailed did you go with the outgoings? Right now Ive just put major things like food travel and bills.

Im actually finding this harder than DLA.

TheDMshouldbeRivened Mon 07-Sep-09 16:03:11

food, travel, bills, contact lenses, bus fares for the older kids, that sort of thing.
Clothing allowance for each child (which we don't actually spend but CAB and Caudwell told us to pretend we were normal people who bought clothes and went shopping!)

Also did you include DC's DLA in incomings?

TheDMshouldbeRivened Mon 07-Sep-09 16:55:47

I think so. Is that bit on thje frm?

staryeyed Mon 07-Sep-09 18:16:04

yeah says earned income then benefits.

TheDMshouldbeRivened Mon 07-Sep-09 19:19:11

then out down the DLA. Make sure in expenses you include anything you have to use DLA on though. Like motability car or extra washing or taxi rides to hospital or equipment.
