At Family Fund, our first priority is providing help and support for families raising disabled or seriously ill children. To support this, we work with a number of charities and organisations.

Some of the organisations and groups Family Fund is a member of include:

Children in Scotland

Children in Northern Ireland

Children in Wales

Council for Disabled Children

Every Disabled Child Matters

Some of the recent campaigns and reports we have supported include:

  • The implementation of the recommendations of 2014’s parliamentary inquiry into childcare costs for disabled children, including removing barriers to accessing childcare support and ensuring local authorities are making families aware of the free childcare currently available for parents of under-5s
  • A cross-departmental strategy for addressing the needs of disabled children, as advocated in EDCM’s Right From The Start report
  • The recommendations of the Extra Costs Commission’s report into the costs faced by disabled people, including for government and regulators to intervene when features of markets result in unfair extra costs for disabled people

Family Fund will continue to work with sector partners to help make the most of opportunities to provide support to families wherever possible.
