About

Family Fund is the UK's largest charity providing grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. 

Family Fund believes that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people should have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families. 

Family Fund supports this aim by providing grants for essential items such as kitchen appliances, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets/computers, furniture and clothing.

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 also provides a range of programmes and services, as well as information and advice to families that apply to them, in order to help them access more of the support that may be of help to them in raising their child or young person.
