  • Family Fund (essential items for families on low incomes)

    Created: 21/11/2022, Updated: 25/01/2023

    Family Fund provides families raising a disabled, or seriously ill, child on low incomes with wide-ranging grants for essential items. Whether you need a kitchen appliance, like a fridge, cooker or washing machine, clothing and bedding, sensory or play equipment or technology for your child or a much-needed family break, we are here to help.

    You can apply for any items that will help meet your child’s additional support needs.

    Who can apply
