Please note: Applications for a Family Fund grant must be made by the parent or carer of the disabled child or young person, but you can support them to complete the application. Families living in Wales should look at our Wales application pages.

If the family is applying for the first time

They will need to download an application form or you can ask for one to be sent to you.

If the family has applied before

They may be able to apply online.

The application form and brochure contain all the information about how to fill in the form and what documents (photocopies only please) you need to include. We’ve also produced this video, which provides a step-by-step guide to how to fill in the application form.

We accept one application per household, so if you are making an application on behalf of more than one child, please complete an additional child form for each child you are applying for.

After a family has been awarded a grant, they can submit another application nine months from the date of their last award letter.

If you are unsure about any of the information provided or need further help, please contact us.
