How We Can Help


We have changed our Grant System - please read


The Campbell Burns Metabolic Trust helps the families of children, aged ten and under, who have been diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. We offer assistance through the awarding of grants (up to the value of £100). Families can apply for two grants every 12 months from a choice of three. 


Unfortunately, due to demands on our funds, we are unable to accept multiple applications from families with more than one child with a metabolic condition. A maximum of two grants per family will be awarded every 12 months.


Please note that our application forms and guidance documents have changed, in line with General Data Protection Regulation, effective from 25th May 2018. The application forms reflect the need for more detailed consent to be given for the processing of data. Families should also refer to the Trust's Privacy and Data Retention Policy when making an application.
