In Wales, Family Fund supported 5,429 families in 2015/2016, with grants worth over £2.5 million.
With this support, Welsh families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children were given the opportunities that others often take for granted, from family breaks and days out to kitchen appliances, furniture, clothing, computers and tablets.
2,583 UK families who submitted an urgent application received help within 48 hours of finding themselves in an unexpected financial crisis, requiring help with, for example, hospital visiting costs.
I plan to meet with Family Fund in the near future to discuss what more I can do as AM for North Wales and MEP for Wales to support families here. You can apply for a grant here.
You can read their annual review for 2015/2016 here.
