If you have a child with a disability you should know about
the Family Fund.
The Family Fund gives grants to lower income families with disabled children for things that make life easier and more enjoyable. Grants are given to those raising a disabled or seriously ill child aged 17 or under, to help improve well-being and ease the pressures they often face.
A grant can sometimes help with items such as washing machines, fridges, bedding, specialist toys as well as a much-needed family breaks. The Family Fund uses their own eligibility criteria to ensure that it only helps those families who are most in need. But please see the Family Fund website for the most up to date information about the services that they provide.
We signpost families to the Family Fund if they have a disabled or seriously ill child as they can help with a wide range of things that might be useful for you to be aware of. If a family has already had help this year from the Family Fund for something other than a break then we can consider an application, providing the family meets our own eligibility criteria.
