We are the UK's largest grant-making charity for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, on a low income.
Family Fund’s mission and vision
Family Fund believes that families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people should have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as wider families. We try to make this happen every day by:
Giving grants to families on a low income for items they may not otherwise be able to afford. For example family breaks, digital equipment, white goods, clothing, bedding, furniture and play equipment.
Offering services to help parents and carers to achieve the outcomes they want for their child and family. This includes where to go for support with money, benefits and budget planning, information on mental health and wellbeing. And practical workshops to help people get online and use digital tools.
Providing ways for families to share their experiences, so they can influence lasting change on issues that matter to them.
Is to improve the day-to-day lives of families on a low income, raising a disabled or seriously ill child, or young person. We do this by providing grants and services that ease daily pressures and improve quality of life. And by helping families to influence the wider support landscape.
