In 2020/21 we helped 5,426 families with grants across Northern Ireland. This meant that thousands of essential items were awarded to families, including computers, tablets, kitchen appliances, much needed family breaks and much more. Family Fund receives support from the Department of Health

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.

Further help

You can find more information on services for families in Northern Ireland at the Family Support NI website. We are also a member of Children in Northern Ireland.

You might also wish to try Family Support Hubs. These provide early intervention family support services to vulnerable families and children/young persons aged up to 18 years.

Further information about support available for disabled young people in Northern Ireland can also be found at NI Direct.
