Family Fund - https://www.familyfund.org.uk/FAQs/are-we-eligible-to-apply
Helps families across the UK who are raising a disabled or seriously ill child or young person aged 17 or under
You can apply to Family Fund if: - You live in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales - You are the parent or carer of a disabled or seriously ill child or young person aged 17 or under - You have permanent legal residency in the UK and have lived in the UK for the last six months. - You have evidence of entitlement to one of the following: Universal Credit, Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit, Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit*, Employment Support Allowance*, Housing Benefit and Pension Credit. If you do not receive any of the above, you can still apply, but we will need some extra information about your household income. Depending on what money you have coming into your home we may not be able to help as we have to prioritise helping those on lower incomes. If you are not in receipt of any of the above benefits, you will need to provide additional information and evidence of your whole household income and we will contact you after you have applied.
As a parent or carer, you know what your child or family might need to help them. We will look at any grant request that relates to the needs of a disabled or seriously ill child, young person and their family. This might be furniture, clothing, bedding, kitchen appliances, sensory toys, computers or tablets, a family break, or maybe something to help with college for 16 and 17 year olds
