Viewing PDFs (Portable Document Format)
Many of the Trust's leaflets and application forms are available on
the site for downloading. Most of these documents are in PDF format
which means they can be viewed using the free Adobe Reader
software. Please Note that Adobe® Acrobat® Reader software is
required to open the attached documents. Adobe® Acrobat® Reader is
a free utility that can be downloaded from Adobe.
Select to download it.
If you want to view the PDF document in a new window, please
right click on the icon with your mouse and select "open in a new
window". After viewing or printing the document, you can close the
new Web browser window by using the close button at the top right
Adobe also offer other useful resources and tools to aid the
accessibility of PDFs, these can be accessed via the Adobe
Accessibility website, and include a text-only Adobe Reader
download page and an online conversion tool for PDFs.
Online and downloadable (PDF) forms
A number of forms on
this site are available for online completion and we will be adding
to the number of online forms in the months ahead. The remainder
are PDF forms on the site that are enabled for electronic
completion. This means that you can save a copy of the form to a
location you select on your computer, complete the form fields in
Adobe Acrobat, print out a copy for your records and a copy to
send, sign and return by post or in person to the address indicated
on the form.
If you have a full version of
Adobe Acrobat you can fill in the form electronically, save it and
email the completed form to us as an attachment, to the email
address included in the document. However, you can only save a
completed form if you have the full version of Adobe.
If you prefer, you can print
out the form, complete it by hand and return it by post or in
person to the address on the form.
