Family Fund believes that all families raising disabled and seriously ill children and young people should have the same opportunities as others. We are the largest grant-making charity in the disability or children’s sector providing unparalleled grant support across the UK making a difference to tens of thousands of families per year.

We could not continue this essential work without the 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 and young people. Thank you to our small but growing team at Family Fund who work hard to support some of the most vulnerable families across the UK.

We also extend our warmest thanks to all the families who generously shared their pictures and stories for this annual review, which show the reality of raising a disabled child or young person in the UK, in their voice.
