Family Fund Trading (FFT) is the trading arm of Family Fund, set up to work in partnership with other charities and local authorities to share Family Fund’s grant administration and fulfilment experience.

In essence, FFT operates a web-based B2B fulfilment service for goods awarded through local authority and charity grant applications. It provides fulfilment of a wide range of essential goods and services including washing machines, fridges, freezers, beds, furniture, carpets, clothing, bedding, cash out services, energy vouchers and food.

The service is fast, efficient and provides tangible value for money, ensuring grant funds are maximised to benefit even more applicants. This year FFT has fulfilled more than 78,000 orders for over 300,000 items.

With the gifted profits from 2013/14, we were able to progress improvements to our service to families and invest in our systems which continue through this year and the next. 

The success of FFT during its second year has resulted in profits of £994,000 being gifted to Family Fund, the largest unrestricted donation that the Fund has received ever!  More much-needed services are being developed for our families so watch this space for more news.
