Supporting children with complex needs
A welcome package announced today which will hopefully be of much needed support to families across our borough was the £10 million-pound settlement for Family Fund. The money will help low-income families with seriously ill or disabled children with the cost of equipment, goods or services – from washing machines and refrigerators to sensory and educational equipment that they might not otherwise be able to afford. The grants are typically worth £400 to £500 per family, but vary depending on need. You can read more here and families can apply for grants by visiting the Family Fund website https://www.familyfund.org.uk/
