Hi All Disappear
Just wondering if there are any alternatives to the family fund?
I've had a little look around on the web the last couple of days but don't seem to be able to find much out for some reason? Huh

Hi and welcome to the forum,
There are no real generic alternatives but there are charities that can help with certain health conditions.
What were you looking to fund and what condition does your child have?

Some charities can help with equipment and others can even help with holidays. Smile
Looking for sensory toys at affordable prices then look no further

I, too have been looking for an alternative as the family fund have altered their income boundaries and we no longer qualify Angry

Me too, we were advised to apply but by the time we did they had changed their thresholds, annoyed with myself really for not applying sooner but Chloe is adopted and we had to wait for the order to come through. Back to the drawing board for an adapted tricycle!
