Shortlist – Embracing Opportunity and Harnessing Risk
Who they are
Family Fund provides grants, advice and information to families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
What they’ve achieved
In a climate of severe funding cuts, entrepreneurial thinking helped Family Fund support even more parents to raise disabled and seriously ill children.
Trustees created a plan to diversify funding streams by working with local government while the board held them to account. The results speak for themselves: over the past four years, the new trading subsidiary gifted £2.5 million to Family Fund, helping provide 88,119 grants and services to people in need.
