There are currently over one million disabled children in the United Kingdom. One-third of them live in poverty. Families caring for disabled children are more likely to face financial difficulties, as many parents must leave paid opportunities in order to care for their children. Costs rise as a result of the necessity for specialist equipment and frequent appointments. Family Fund can make a difference to those families.
Their goal is to support low-income families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people in order to improve their quality of life, realise their rights, and remove some of the obstacles they encounter in their day-to-day lives.
