Family Fund is the UK's largest charity providing grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.Two years ago, we provided 88,407 grants and services worth over £33 million to families across the UK.*

We believe that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people should have the same:

  • Choices
  • Quality of life
  • Opportunities
  • Aspirations

Beginning with those who are on low income and considering all conditions against our own eligibility criteria (based on the social model of disability).

We aim to make a difference to outcomes for disabled or seriously ill children and young people and the lives of the families raising them across the UK.

We support this aim by providing grants for essential items such as:

  • Kitchen appliances
  • Sensory toys
  • Family breaks
  • Bedding
  • Tablets/computers
  • Furniture
  • Clothing

It can be a struggle finacially, 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.

If you are raising a disabled or seriously ill child under 17 and need support with essential items, Family Fund may be able to help.

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