Inclusion is not a new concept at Family Fund.

It is fundamental to who we are and why we do what we do. 

Our purpose is to improve the lives of low-income families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.

Our mission is to provide items and services to all low-income families in the UK raising disabled or seriously ill children, that they could not otherwise afford or access, and that help improve their quality of life, realise their rights, and remove some of the barriers they face.

Our vision is that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families.

 

Changes in the world, in society and in our everyday lives have meant that we want to dial up our focus on inclusion and focus on the positive changes we can make together.  We want to establish a workplace and working environment that confronts discrimination in all its forms and champions equity for all.

With the input of our staff, we have created our inclusion statement. This sets out our commitment to improve inclusion in all aspects of our work. We will achieve our vision for inclusion through five areas of work.
