Family Fund is part of a new project called Power Up.

This project runs in Edinburgh and Glasgow to help parents and carers on low incomes develop the confidence and skills to use online tools, websites and Apps to manage money, save on spending and access benefits and grants.

The training is free for parent/carers who are:

  • raising a disabled or seriously ill child or young person
  • living in Edinburgh or Glasgow local authority areas
  • on a low income.

It is also useful for you to have a digital device and regular access to the internet. If you don’t have a device or internet access, please do still get in touch.

Power Up training is tailored to individual needs and choices, with various options for learning support is available throughout the journey. 

Power Up is an initiative by Good Things Foundation, with the financial support from J.P. Morgan.
