Thinking about applying to Family Fund, and wondering what items you can apply for? Our aim is to support families with grants that will make a real difference, and we can provide grants for a wide range of items.
Our popular grants include washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, clothing, and computers. We offer grants for many more things too, and are happy for you to contact us with requests for things that you can prove will help meet your child’s additional needs.
Once we have made a decision on your application, you will receive a letter to explain whether or not we can provide a grant on this occasion, and how it will be provided. Please check your award letter for details on how to use your grant. If you are having difficulty please contact us.
