Family Fund gives practical help to families with severely disabled and seriously ill children under the age of 18.
Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. In 2020, they provided 92,585 grants or services worth over £32 million to families across the UK.
Their purpose is to improve the lives of low-income families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
Their mission is to provide items and services to all low-income families in the UK raising disabled or seriously ill children, that they could not otherwise afford or access, and that help improve their quality of life, realise their rights, and remove some of the barriers they face.
Their vision is that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families.
They provide grants for a wide range of items, such as washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, 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.
