Who we are

We are the UK’s largest provider of grants to low-income families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people. We help ease the additional pressures families face. We can help with essential items such as washing machines, fridges and clothing but can also consider grants for sensory toys, computers and much needed family breaks together.

Our friendly team can be found spreading the word about the Fund's grants at many events across the UK. To meet us and find out more about our grant help, see if we're heading to an event near you.


Tell us how we helped

Knowing the impact of a grant on a family's life and well-being means we can improve the service we offer, as well as continue to be a voice for families and influence change within government. The difference we make is clear, see for yourself.
