A year of wider support: Our Annual Review 2017/18 Family Fund’s latest Annual Review demonstrates the delivery of our widest range of grants and support services to date. Bringing key statistics and facts together with the stories of families raising disabled and seriously ill children across the UK, our dedicated, interactive Annual Review 2017/18 is now live. Highlights and key statistics from Family Fund’s Annual Review 2017/18: Family Fund provided 88,407 essential grants or services to families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people across the UK. Family Fund received, and considered, 84,932 applications from families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. A total of 2,427 families received urgent help within 48 hours through our urgent referrer network, intended to help those faced with unexpected financial crises. 13,864 services were provided, including information, advice and support on the telephone and face to face in the family’s home. We extended our digital skills training to a further 286 parents and carers to help them develop the skills to make better use of the technology in supporting their children’s needs and take advantage of services and support available online. £3.3 million of additional income was generated through contracted suppliers and negotiating contracts. Family Fund ensured 93p in every £1 was spent on direct charitable purposes. To support our work or for more information about Family Fund’s Annual Review 2017/18 please email [email protected].
