Family Fund

Family Fund - Change to Income Criteria
To make sure we are helping families who are on the lowest of incomes and in greatest need, the Fund will be making a change to its income criteria and will now be guided by a family’s entitlement to government financial support in the form of benefit and tax credits.


This means that we will now consider a grant application from any family caring for a disabled child or young person aged 17 and under in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, where they are eligible for, and can send us evidence of entitlement to, one the following: Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit, Income based Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit*, Employment Support Allowance*, Housing Benefit and Pension Credit. Families must still however meet all our other eligibility criteria in order to be eligible.

  • We may need to ask for more information about other household income.
