Family Fund - for severely disabled and seriously ill children

Description:

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, they provided 88,407 grants and services worth over £33 million to families across the UK.

They 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.  Beginning with those on low incomes, and considering all conditions against their own eligibility criteria (based on the social model of disability), they aim to make a difference to outcomes for disabled or seriously ill children and young people and the lives of the families raising them across the UK.

Family Fund support this aim by providing 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.

They also provide a range of programmes and services, as well as information and advice to families, in order to help them access more of the support that may be of help to them in raising their child or young person.
