I am an NSM Priest (Non-Stipendiary Minister) whose wife has multiple disabilities including arthritis, diabetes and fibromyalgia, which somewhat impairs her mobility.

We try to go on holiday once a year, as such we rent a cottage somewhere to sit and relax. Unfortunately, we have to rely on state benefits, which is fine but does not really cover a decent holiday, especially as a cottage with full disabled access usually costs more than other cottages.

The grants we have received help us to go and stay in suitable accommodation and helps with the food and travel expenses throughout the week. I don't know how we would manage, without help from Sons & Friends of the Clergy.
