Family Fund - provider of grants for disabled children or seriously ill children
Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Last year, we provided 89,101 grants and services worth over £33 million to families across the UK.
We provide grants for essential items such as kitchen appliances, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets/computers, furniture and clothing. It can be a struggle financially, emotionally and physically for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, and these grants help break down many of the barriers families face, improving their quality of life and easing the additional daily pressures.
Apply for a grant
If you’re raising a disabled or seriously child, we might be able to help. There are three things to consider when applying to Family Fund:
- Are your family eligible? We help families living in the UK on low incomes. Check our eligibility criteria to find out if this could be you.
- Is your child eligible? We use our own criteria to assess your child or young person’s additional support needs. Look at our child and young person eligibility criteria to see if we might be able to help.
