The Family Fund is a UK-wide charity, which for over 40 years has been giving grants to families on a low income raising a disabled or seriously ill child aged 17 and under. Last year we helped almost 70,000 families with £33 million in 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.
