Back in May, Family Fund received additional funding worth £10 million from the Department of Education to help provide grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children in England this year. The emergency funding has been provided in response to the crisis presented by the Coronavirus pandemic and will help more parents and carers to look after their children.

Family Fund recently reached out to us, as they are looking for someone who gets a grant who would be willing to be interviewed over Zoom and have it go on Look North news. The interview will help promote the programme, so they can reach more families in the North who are missing out on this very helpful funding.

If you’re in receipt of a Family Fund grant and would love to say why you got a grant, what you had and what a difference it’s made to your child or the family, please let us know so we can forward your details to Family Fund.
