We applied for the inflatable spa for Suzy. It’s really good for her because she can’t weight bear, being in the water takes the pressure off and is very relaxing for her, she really enjoys it.

Raising a disabled or seriously ill child can mean huge financial pressure for a family.

We work hard to make every penny we receive in funding, donations, sponsorship and discounts stretch as far as possible to help as many families as we can across the UK.

A big thank you to everybody

Family Fund believes that all families raising disabled and seriously ill children should have the same opportunities as others.

As the largest grant-making charity in the disability or children’s sector we work on an unparalleled scale across the UK to provide grants that make a difference to tens of thousands of families.

This vital work cannot continue without the generous support of the agencies, organisations and individuals who fund us, tell people about us, and help us deliver our work.

We would like to thank all four UK Governments for their ongoing support, as well as our suppliers, partner organisations, fundraisers, donors, charitable trusts and volunteers, who enable us to make a lasting difference in the lives of families on low incomes raising disabled and seriously ill children.

We also extend our warmest thanks to all the families who’ve generously shared their pictures and stories for this annual review, allowing us to truly bring our work to life.
