Children's Fund

Sometimes a helping hand is all that's needed for the hidden extras that always seem to crop up when you least expect them – the growth spurts that lead to more new shoes and school uniform, the school trips that need paying the same month as the car repairs, the gym lessons that all their friends go to but it’s just too much of a stretch when you need to buy the kit as well.

Are you eligible?

You can apply for our Children's Fund if your gross household income is less than £40,000 per annum and you are in receipt of Child Benefit.
