Family Fund - Grants for disabled 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. 

What we do

Family Fund supports families living across the UK who are who are raising a disabled or seriously ill child or young person up to the age of 17. Our support is focused on those on low incomes with a child/children who have a high level of additional support needs.

At Family Fund, we believe that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people should have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families.

We support this by providing grants for a range of essential items (external link). Families can apply for kitchen appliances such as fridges, freezers and cookers, as well as clothing, bedding, games, books and music, laptops and tablets, family breaks, sensory toys and more.

Who can apply?

We use our own Child and Young Person’s Eligibility Criteria (external link) to assess a disabled or seriously ill child or young person’s additional support needs based on the social model of disability.

You can also read more about our General Eligibility Criteria (external link).

Children and young people do not need a diagnosis to meet our criteria.
