About us

Family Fund is dedicated to helping families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people. Our purpose, our mission and our vision is at the heart of everything we do:

• Our purpose is to improve the lives of families on low income raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
• Our mission is to provide items and services to all families on low income 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.

If you've got the belief, the drive and the talent to help us in our ambition, then we want to hear from you! Family Fund is a great place to work for great people. We provide a challenging and rewarding working environment where every staff member can make their mark. We are a values based organisation, and we aim to show our values in all that we do. Read here how our staff display our values every day and click here to learn more about our staff.

We are proud to be a Voluntary Living Wage and Disability confident employer. Inclusion and equity are at the core of our purpose and we aim to create a culture where we acknowledge and celebrate all differences so our staff, volunteers, and the families we support feel safe and free to be themselves, always.

Family Fund is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The health and safety of staff working in the office is very important to us, so we are still operating with a limited capacity, with social distancing and the wearing of face masks, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
