Apply For Funds

The UK Chagos Support Association supports the Chagossian community in their struggle for justice.

The UK Chagos Support Association distributes money we raise to help individual Chagossians and groups. We have provided money to help repair homes, run events and organise sports teams.

If you are a Chagossian who wants to apply for funds (or if you want to apply for funds on behalf of a Chagossian/Chagossians), please fill in this form. You need to state exactly how much money you want and exactly what for. We will then consider your application and get back to you as soon as possible. Be as clear and detailed as you can about how you want to spend the money – we can’t give funds out unless we can see exactly what it will be used for and what will be achieved.

For any funding we give, we will need receipts to show the money was spent for the purpose mentioned in the original application.


The maximum amount you can apply for is £300 unless circumstances are exceptional. If you want to apply for more than this please set out very clearly why it is necessary.


If you would prefer not to use the form below, you may also send your application in via email to

All applications will be considered by the UK Chagos Support Association committee. This is currently made up of Tom Guha, Peri Batliwala, Lorriane Rogerson, Stefan Donnelly, Kinnari Bhatt, Karishma Bolakee and Rashida Simpson. We will not share details of your application with anyone else.
