To help more families right now, during the current crisis, families who have not received a grant since 1 April 2020 can apply for one today.

Wales

This year there have been some changes for those applying to Family Fund living in Wales.  The terms of our funding mean we must provide items that support giving families a break. We know that taking a break or having a day trip isn’t possible right now, so we can also help with items that help to take a ‘break’ at home. This can be items such as outdoor play equipment; games, books and music; computers and tablets; sensory toys and equipment.

If you received a grant between 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020, you can only apply for extra items to support you and your family during lockdown such as sensory toys, computers, tablets, games, books and music. You cannot apply for a family break or day trip.

If you have not received a grant since 1 April 2020 you can apply for one today.
