Occasionally, I write a post for Family Fund based on a topic they give me as a focus. Family Fund “is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.”
We applied for a Grant a while ago (See I win, I win!) to buy a few sensory bits for Jude’s bedroom – I specifically wanted lights, a hammock swing and anything else I could find to help calm him down. They very generously gave me a voucher for £500 to use with a specific online store and literally within a week we had lots of fantastic things for Jude to enjoy.
It’s a great organisation that many families rely on for support with their disabled child. I know of people who have been allocated money for communication tools such as touch type pads so their child is able to “write” like their friends in class, day trips away, equipment to help their children get about easier such as specialised frames, etc. Basically, anything you need (within reason). They don’t always say yes but never fail to help when they can.
Today, they published this so I thought I’d post it here in case you fancied a read and a nosey around their website.
