Family Fund is the UK’s largest grant-giving charity for families raising children and young people with disabilities or serious illnesses.
Family Fund aims to give all families raising children and young people with disabilities or serious illnesses the same opportunities as others by providing grants for essential items such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, clothing and computers.
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. Family Fund’s support is not just financial; they also provide information on other advice and services at a local, regional and national level for families.
