The Family Fund
The Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Last year, they provided 88,407 grants or services worth over £33 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.
The Family Fund’s mission
The Family Fund’s 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 aim 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.
Their ambition is to provide 150,000 grants and services to families across the UK by 2022. Click here to read more about our strategy.
