Charities - Accounting for grants on behalf of service user

As a charity we have a situation where we can be applying for a small grant on behalf of one of our service users.
Such grants are awarded only to the referring organisation as individuals are not allowed to apply.

I was curious as to the best way of accounting for this if;
1. We receive the grant then distribute to the service user in cash or cheque to buy the equipment?
2. We receive the grant then by the equipment on the service user's behalf?

Many thanks
