In 2015/16 we received 66,749 applications and helped 58.621 families with grants across England. This meant that 83,052 essential items were awarded to families throughout 2015/16, including computers, tablets, kitchen appliances, much needed family breaks and much more. We receive funding from the Department for Education.

In 2014, we commissioned the York St John’s University to undertake a qualitative study of the outcomes that have resulted from the Fund’s work in England and how it corresponds with relevant outcome-based policies in England. Read the study.

But our impact spreads further than financial grants, we also provide vital information and signpost to other support services, some of which can be found on where else to get help.
